COVID-19 Key Worker Childcare Information

From the 20th of March 2020, Primary and Secondary Schools and Local Authority Early Learning and Childhood Centres in Scotland are closed to control the spread of coronavirus.

Many of these facilties may remain open from Monday the 23rd of March to provide childcare for certain groups and activities such children identified as being vulnerable and the children of 'key workers' such as NHS and social care staff. The latest advice is that students in S4-S6 should not attend school to finish coursework.
