Regular attendance at school is vital for children to learn as much as they can and achieve their full potential.  At Northwood we expect children to attend school every day and to arrive on time so that they don’t miss out on any of the opportunities open to them.


We are very proud that our parents and pupils really value education and understand the importance of children attending school both regularly and punctually.


Our weekly attendance figures are regularly above 96%, and some classes often achieve 100% attendance for the week.  


In 2018/19 there were many more cases of chickenpox than usual, particularly in the lower year groups.  As a result our attendance figures were slightly lower in 2018/19 than normal, but were still very good. 


Here is a summary of attendance for 2018/19:


Year Group Percentage Attendance
Year 6 96.93%

Year 5

Year 4 98.64%
Year 3 95.91%
Year 2 96.33%
Year 1 96.85%
Reception Year 94.61%


  • In 2018/19 twenty four of our children had 100% attendance for the whole year - a fantastic achievement!


  • Our overall school attendance for the year 2018/19 was 96.73%


Please help us by making sure your child comes to school every day and arrives on time.  The bell is rung at 8:45 a.m. and children should be in their classes by 8:55 a.m.  If your child is away for any reason please telephone the school office on 020 8310 2722 to let us know why.
