You should complete this survey only if you have not previously registered with us as a key worker.
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.
Please do not use this form to communicate about other matters including SQA exams.
Key workers fall into 3 categories:
- Category 1: Health and Care workers directly supporting COVID response, life threatening emergency work or critical primary and community care services.
- Category 2: All other health care workers and emergency/critical services (Police, Fire, Prisons, Social Workers etc.).
- Category 3: All workers without whom there could be a significant impact on Scotland or the ability to keep the country running would be compromised.
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.
At this time it is not clear the extent to which we can or will be allowed to respond to whatever level of need is identified by the survey.
