Children of Key workers

A number of childcare places are being made available for key workers. An application form can be found here. For further information, contact the Education Support Team at

Priority is being given to those listed as Category 1 key workers in the first instance. The definition of a Category 1 key worker is:
•    Health care workers directly supporting COVID response, and associated staff;
•    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.

Please note: the Scottish Government has set the priorities and we would ask that only those falling into the key worker category, as defined above, apply for support at this stage.
