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.
Our school day starts at 8:45 a.m. when we open the classroom doors for children to come in. Children must be in class by 8:55 a.m. or they will be marked as late.
School finishes at 3:00 p.m. on Mondays to Thursdays and at 12:15 p.m. on Fridays.
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.
As in 2019/20, attendance in 2020/21 was significantly affected by Coronavirus; school was open to children of Key Worker families throughout the national lockdown in January and February 2021, with work set on Google Classroom for all other children to complete remotely. We were delighted to welcome everyone back to school on 8th March when schools fully re-opened.
Despite the disruption we are proud that our overall attendance levels for the year were still very high. Below is a summery of attendance for the year 2020/21.
|Year Group||Percentage Attendance|
- In 2020/21 twenty seven of our children had 100% attendance for the year
- a fantastic achievement!
- Our overall school attendance for the year 2020/21 (7th September 2020 to 20th July 2021) was 95.52%
Please make sure that your child comes to school every and arrives on time. If your child is absent for any reason please telephone the school office on 020 8310 2722 to let us know why.
