Latest COVID-19 Guidance - Sickness Policy

Following further guidance from the local authority/health board, we would like to outline our COVID policy.

It is asked that any child who is unwell not attend school and stay home until they feel well again. If your child is feeling unwell during school hours we will ask you to come and collect them.

It is essential that any pupil who has COVID-19 symptoms, or who share a household with someone who has symptoms, does not attend school and follows the self-isolation guidance and access a test at a testing site or at home using the online booking portal. If your child is sent home from school due to having a COVID symptom, we will also ask you to collect any siblings who are in school at the same time.

The main symptoms of COVID-19 are:

a high temperature: this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)

a new, continuous cough: this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)

a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste: this means you've noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal

We recommend testing for those with a continuous cough, fever, or loss of or change in the sense of taste or smell. If an individual has other cold-like symptoms, such as a runny nose, they do not need to be tested or to self-isolate but we would ask that they stay away from school until they feel better.

Booking a free coronavirus (COVID-19) test is done through the online booking portal. This will then give you a range of testing options available in your local area. These will usually be:

Test centre - Booking a test at a drive-in test centre is likely to be the fastest way to get a test. You should be aware of local test centres in order to advise staff, students and parents/carers.

Home test kit – Staff, parents/carers and FE students can order a home test kit for themselves or up to three members of their household.

Individuals (and their households) should self-isolate until they receive a negative result or, in the case of a positive result, for the period advised by the contact tracing team. We would ask that all parents/carers inform us immediately of the results of a test.

If you are contacted by a contact tracer we ask that you follow their guidance and please let us know at school as soon as possible.

Many thanks from your continued support

Mrs Mansell and CHL Governing Body

Welcome to our school website!

I am very proud to be able to share with you the wonderful opportunities and developments at Crumlin High Level Primary School.

Crumlin High Level Primary School is a vibrant school where children are enthusiastic and motivated to achieve endless possibilities. The children are at the heart of every decision we make to ensure that they are happy, confident and that the opportunities that are provided for them are relevant to their needs both now and in the future.

At CHL, we believe that children should be curious about their learning. Through our engaging curriculum, we ensure that children can foster a passion for learning that will help to develop high aspirations and a lifetime of memories. We believe in ensuring that children receive a well-rounded curriculum; where individual talents can be spotted and nurtured to ensure that all children experience success and reach their full potential. We are working towards Successful Futures and believe that providing opportunities for children to develop characteristics for effective learning and life.

The school has a dedicated team that works hard to reach high standards in everything we do and this is further embedded through our successful relationships with parents, the local community and the other schools in both the cluster and wider school community. We firmly believe that education is a partnership between home and school and regard you as an active partner in your child's education and value your interest and support.

I hope that this website will give you as much information as possible about our school, the staff and the many activities that our children enjoy through our curriculum and our extra-curricular activities that you need. It will grow over time as we add more information, but can never replace the first-hand experience of coming to visit us. If you have suggestions to make about its content and design or would like to see us at work please contact me.
