I am wondering if teachers are allowed to tutor children who attend the school that they teach at? We are thinking of getting a tutor for dd and her teacher last year was amazing. I wouldn't like to ask if it would be prohibited.

In my dd's school I know there are teachers who tutor their school pupils after school finishes. They even tutor some kids during lunch hours say half an hour each time may be twice a week. Parents pay for the one to one tuitions. Good school!! High level achieving school!!!

DDs HT gave one of her DFs maths tutoring after school.

Very successfully I believe as she was very shy and went on to senior school with a deal more confidence in her abilities.

DDs class had some very able and very confident characters, time doing stuff away from them was an enormous help.

Thanks. Are they paid and if so, the going rate?

I would say it's ok if not their form tutor. I guess if they were tutored by their form tutor there would be a conflict of interest as the parents would not want to keep paying the tutor if the child didn't show an adequate rate of progression at school - and so the teacher could be tempted to show a greater level of improvement to keep the tutoring!
