UK Government Stay At Home Guidance
The most common symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are recent onset of:
new continuous cough and/or
For most people, coronavirus (COVID-19) will be a mild illness.
- if you live alone and you have symptoms of coronavirus illness (COVID-19), however mild, stay at home for 7 days from when your symptoms started.
- if you live with others and you or one of them have symptoms of coronavirus, then all household members must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days. The 14-day period starts from the day when the first person in the house became ill
- it is likely that people living within a household will infect each other or be infected already. Staying at home for 14 days will greatly reduce the overall amount of infection the household could pass on to others in the community
- for anyone in the household who starts displaying symptoms, they need to stay at home for 7 days from when the symptoms appeared, regardless of what day they are on in the original 14 day isolation period.
- if you can, move any vulnerable individuals (such as the elderly and those with underlying health conditions) out of your home, to stay with friends or family for the duration of the home isolation period
- if you cannot move vulnerable people out of your home, stay away from them as much as possible
- if you have coronavirus symptoms:
- do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital
- you do not need to contact 111 to tell them you’re staying at home
- testing for coronavirus is not needed if you’re staying at home
- plan ahead and ask others for help to ensure that you can successfully stay at home and consider what can be done for vulnerable people in the household
- ask your employer, friends and family to help you to get the things you need to stay at home
- wash your hands regularly for 20 seconds, each time using soap and water, or use hand sanitiser
- if you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home, or your condition gets worse, or your symptoms do not get better after 7 days, then use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service. If you do not have internet access, call NHS 111. For a medical emergency dial 99

Welcome to Crownfield Infant School
Welcome to Crownfield Infant and Nursery School website, we have included information about our school; how it operates, what events take place and how we all work together to make our school the warm, welcoming learning environment that it is. This website will give you an insight in to our work and values.
The website is designed to help you if you are considering Crownfield Infant and Nursery School as a school for your child, or to be a guide to you if you are already part of our school.
You will notice that education at Crownfield is more than core curriculum as we are totally committed to developing the creative, physical, emotional and social side of our children. We aim to give each of these elements equal importance through a knowledge rich curriculum, outstanding teaching and strong partnerships with parents and other stakeholders. Our goal is to ensure that every child has the best possible learning experience whilst they are in our care.
Our curriculum is crafted by subject specialists who ensure learning and skills are built upon and children are able to move onto the next stage of their learning with the vocabulary, knowledge and experience to demonstrate a deep understanding of each subject through a progression of skills.
The site provides only a brief picture of the range of activities we have on offer for our children. We can tell you about the curriculum, our aims, activities and successes but we cannot convey our ethos or atmosphere. We would encourage you to visit our school, preferably during the school day and also visit our Testimonial page.
Alongside the academic and creative learning, we want our children to become contributing citizens who take care of their environment. We also aim to ensure our children are happy and are able to develop their well-being and resilience whilst with us. This work is supported by a skilled pastoral team who ensure that every child and family receive the support needed to take on the challenges they face and acknowledge their personal responsibilities and opportunities.
As a school community we are proud of our school and hope this is reflected in this website. Do let us know if you have any comments or suggestions for improvements.
If you would like your child to join us, please arrange a visit or come to one of our open days.
We are also keen to hear from our local community regarding work opportunities, whether teachers or support staff. Please look at our website for vacancies, or just register your interest with us - we would love to hear from you!
We look forward to meeting you.
