Stay at home: guidance for households with possible coronavirus (COVID-19) infection




The most common symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are recent onset of:

  • new continuous cough and/or
  • high temperature (above 37.8°c)

For most people, coronavirus (COVID-19) will be a mild illness.

Main messages

  • 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. (The ending isolation section below has more information)
  • after 7 days, if you do not have a high temperature, you do not need to continue to self-isolate. If you still have a high temperature, keep self-isolating until your temperature returns to normal. You do not need to self-isolate if you just have a cough after 7 days, as a cough can last for several weeks after the infection has gone
  • if you live with others and you are the first in the household to have symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19), then you must stay at home for 7 days, but all other household members who remain well 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. See the explanatory diagram
  • for anyone else 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. The ending isolation section below has more information, and see the explanatory diagram
  • staying at home for 14 days will greatly reduce the overall amount of infection the household could pass on to others in the community
  • 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
  • reduce the spread of infection in your home: wash your hands regularly for 20 seconds, each time using soap and water, or use hand sanitiser; cover coughs and sneezes
  • if you have coronavirus (COVID-19) 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 (COVID-19) is not needed if you’re staying at home
  • 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 onlinecoronavirus (COVID-19) service. If you do not have internet access, call NHS 111. For a medical emergency dial 999
  • if you develop new coronavirus (COVID-19) symptoms at any point after ending your first period of isolation (self or household) then you need to follow the same guidance on self-isolation again

The Accrington Christians Together Foodbank is still open.


They are keen to be able to help families who are struggling to feed children at home or have recently found themselves out of work or furloughed. 

They are operating with a delivery service and food parcels can be booked by ringing The Food Bank on 0751024359. (They will ask a few questions over the phone, but referrals are not needed). Their main delivery day is Wednesday but they can do other days if a family is really desperate. 

They have been fortunate to have had several donations to support the foodbank during COVID – 19 .

Claiming Free School Meals

Under the Government scheme, Free School Meals are no longer free for all children when they enter Year 3. A formal claim must be made to receive free school meals. If you are receipt of any of the following your child is eligible for free school meals:

  • Universal Credit with a household income of less than £7,400 a year (after tax and not including any benefits you get)
  • Income-Based Jobseekers' Allowance
  • Income-Related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Child Tax Credit, not entitled to Working Tax Credit and household income less than £16,190
  • Support under part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • Guarantee element of State Pension Credit
  • Income Support
  • Working Tax Credit 'run on' – the payment you receive for a further four weeks after you finish work

If your child is currently eligible for free school meals, that eligibility will be protected until Universal Credit is introduced (expected March 2022) even if your circumstances change. If your child is still in education on this date, they will be eligible until they finish the phase of schooling (primary) they are in.

For more information contact:  AREA EDUCATION OFFICE, 44 UNION STREET, ACCRINGTON, BB5 1PL.  TEL: 01254 220710

If your child is eligible for free school meals, the school receives additional funding known as Pupil Premium to support their progress and development and to ensure they receive a broad curriculum. Even if you child prefers packed lunches, we urge you to apply if you are eligible. It may be that your child is eligible, but you choose not to make a formal claim for a meal. It is crucial that we are able to report on all children who are entitled to free school meals, not just those who actually take the free school meals. This is worth over £1000 per pupil to school.

Our management information system ensures privacy concerning free school meals status.

Notes for parents: EYFS Asessment



The minimum attendance level which is expected for all primary aged children nationally is 95%. Further to this, individual schools are required to set an annual target for attendance. Green Haworth's target for this year is 96%. In order for us to meet this target we need to ask that all pupils aim for this level of attendance. A good attendance record is vital because even short periods of absence can mean that a child’s ability to keep up with school work may be significantly reduced. Friendship groups can also be affected by time away from school and this can be very upsetting for children.


In order to assess our progress in meeting this challenging target we review the attendance of individual pupils at least once every half term and contact parents of children who are not meeting the target to find out if they need any help or support.


Family holidays should not be taken during term time. Mr. Turner is not able to authorise these and your child will be marked as taking unauthorised leave.


Mr. Turner is able to authorise leave for exceptional circumstances such as funerals and a form needs to be completed to request this authorisation. The form is available from the office and it should be completed and returned to the office.


The happiness and educational progress of all the children at Green Haworth are our priorities and we believe that good attendance is a major way in which these priorities can be achieved. It is for this reason that we ask for your support in this matter. If you would like any further advice in relation to attendance please do not hesitate to contact school.

Snow Procedures

Procedures for school closures: In the event of school being inaccessible to vehicles from Willows Lane, I will make a decision on whether to close the school.


If snow has fallen overnight, listen to Radio Lancashire (95.5 FM/855 MW) for regular updates of which schools have been closed.

If school is closed, parents with a mobile phone registered on the school system will receive a text message to explain. I will endeavour to make this judgment as early as possible so that parents have not begun their journey to school. Please share this message with any friends or family as some parents have their phones turned off at certain times of the day.


A message will also be displayed on the front page of this school website.


In the event of heavy snowfall during the school day, members of staff will text all parents to explain that school is closing and pupils need to be taken home.
