COVID-19 Children of Key Workers

Closed 23 Mar 2020

Opened 20 Mar 2020


As you will be aware the Deputy First Minister yesterday announced the details of the provision that will be provided during the period of school closures.  Part of this provision is ensuring that the children of those key workers who are involved in the response to the Covid-19 emergency have childcare.

Please complete the questionnaire below to enable us to plan our offering.  We are currently seeking to offer provision for nursery and primary age children of key workers who do not have alternative care provision.

Please note the service provided will not be a continuation of normal educational provision and will be supported by colleagues from other council teams and partners such as Live Borders.

Key workers are:

  • NHS staff
  • Health and social care staff
  • Emergency services
  • Scottish Borders Council staff where identified by service manager
  • Education staff delivering provision in schools


  • All Areas


  • Anyone from any background


  • Children and Young People
