Please complete this survey only if you wish to register with us as a key worker to access schooling in January 2021.
Scottish Government has stated that, if one parent is a key worker and the other is not, the non-key worker should normally be expected to provide childcare. If it is at all possible for children to be at home, then they should be. In general, they expect that if key workers can perform their critical functions effectively when working remotely from home, they should do so.
The survey asks you to identify clearly the category you fall into, the nature of your role and details of your employer. Ultimately, the school will be guided by the Scottish Government as to who will be recognised as a key worker and for whom some provision should be made.
Please do not use this form to communicate about other matters.
Key workers fall into 3 categories:
Category 1 – Health and Care workers directly supporting COVID-19 response; Health and Care workers supporting life threatening emergency work, as well as critical primary and community care provision; Energy suppliers (small numbers identified as top priority already); staff providing childcare/learning for other category 1 staff.
Category 2 – All other Health and Care workers, and wider public sector workers providing emergency/critical welfare services (for example: fire, police, prisons, social workers), as well as those supporting our Critical National Infrastructure, without whom serious damage to the welfare of the people of Scotland could be caused.
Category 3 – All workers (private, public or third sector) without whom there could be a significant impact on Scotland (but where the response to COVID-19, or the ability to perform essential tasks to keep the country running, would not be severely compromised
