I have a field in my database that is displayed on my form in Django that i want to be just readonly. How do i do that ?

Here is my a section of my HTML page.

{% extends 'base.html' %}

{% load crispy_forms_tags %}
{% load static %}
{% block content %}

<h2>{% load static %}
<img src="{% static 'forms/star.png' %}" alt="chain" height="62" width= "62">  K-8 School Points</h2>
<div class = "container">
 <div class= 'row'>
  <div class="col-4"> 
<p> Recording Data as User : {{user.username}} </p>

 <div class= 'row'>
  <div class="col-2"> 
<p>{{form.status|as_crispy_field }}</p>                                <------------This is the field i need to be readonly 
<form method="POST">
