  • 3.2.22 - World Book Day 2022!

    Fri 04 Mar 2022 Miss Mitchell & Miss Hewitt

    On 3rd March Northwood celebrated World Book Day 2022.  This year was very special, as the world was celebrating 25 years of World Book Day & Harry Potter Magic!  At Northwood we decided to mark this celebration by asking the children to create a magical object from a book.  The children came up with some wonderful creations, but unfortunately they could not all be chosen as winners, hence Mrs Drohan and Mrs Skinner had a very difficult task choosing a boy and girl winner from each class!  The winning children from each class are below:

     

    Class R - Amelia-Joy & Owen

    Year 1 - Angel & Daniel

    Year 2 - Alvah & Emilia

    Year 3 - Alba & Kelechi

    Year 4 - Farade & Sebastian

    Year 5 - Emilia & Jonathan

    Year 6 - Ellie-Jo & Joshua

     

    Photos of our special assembly and winners are below.  Thank you for your support with this event.

  • We are Gold!

    Tue 09 Nov 2021

    We are delighted to announce that on 9th November 2021 we were successfully re-accredited as a Gold Level Unicef Rights Respecting School recognising how the Rights Respecting ethos is fully embedded at Northwood.

     

    Northwood was first awarded Gold level status in November 2018 and following further assessment in October 2021 the Unicef Assessor has re-accredited our Gold status.

     

    Everyone at Northwood actively promotes the rights of the children at Northwood and we expect all pupils to take their responsibilities very seriously. 

     

    Please visit our Rights Respecting School page for further details:  https://www.northwood.org.uk/rights-respecting-school/

     

  • Year 6 Leavers

    Thu 22 Jul 2021 Joanne Allen

    It was an emotional end to the school year saying goodbye to our Year 6's as they leave to move on to their Secondary schools.  We were delighted to welcome Year 6 parents to their final Assembly and watch them receive their awards and look at photos from their time at Northwood.

     

    A huge thank you to Mr Fisher, Mrs Skinner and Mrs Creasey for organising the event, and special thanks to Mr Fisher for writing such a fantastic poem for the class.  A copy for you to enjoy is below:

     

    WHAT A STRANGE YEAR IT’S BEEN FOR US

     

    What a strange year it’s been for us, we were put to the test…

    But not the normal SATs-y kind – more a weird, social-distanced quest.

    For back in Twenty-Twenty, when the lockdowns first begun,

    We never thought they’d still be here in Twenty-Twenty-one.

     

    What a strange year it’s been for us, our lives changed overnight.

    Yet, acting for the greater good, we did what was just and right.

    It’s been so hard for all you kids; we’re proud of what you’ve shown

    When facing up to difficulties, the likes of which we’ve never known.

     

    What a strange year it’s been for us, my lovely, little class!

    Some of you have been fun to teach, others at times a bit of a pain in the… you get what I mean.

    But, we’re at a time in history that will be in books on shelves:

    A tale to tell our grandchildren that’s greater than ourselves.

     

    What a strange year it’s been for us, you had to leave your friends

    To keep all your loved ones safe and try and bring this to an end.

    They’ll look at you like heroes – the sort we know you are:

    You’re warriors; you’re brave, you’re each a dazzling star.

     

    What a strange year it’s been for us, in a COVID 19 haze,

    But we still have all the memories of many amazing school days.

    Remember learning together and sharing so much fun

    Remember trying really hard to get your homework done.

    Remember the cheers on Sports Day and playing endless Kingsball

    But, most of all, remember how you were valued in this school.

     

    What a strange year it’s been for us, think of each other and smile.

    The kids who showed resilience and went that extra mile.

    So, though it’s time to say goodbye, just know it’s not the end.

    You’ll live on in each of your memories as special Year Six friends.

  • World Book Day 2021

    Fri 05 Mar 2021 Miss Mitchell

    4/3/21

    Today, despite still being closed to the majority of pupils, Northwood celebrated 'World Book Day 2021'!  It was great to see that many pupils joined in our hat competition enthusiastically, and, as in previous years,  created some great designs depicting a story or character.  Thank you to all children and parents/carers for supporting this event, whether in school or at home. Below are some photos of the brilliant designs the children produced.  Miss Mitchell & Miss Hewitt

  • Google Classroom for Remote Learning

    Fri 19 Feb 2021

    From Monday 22nd February all remote learning should be accessed via Google Classroom instead of the class web pages.

     

    Emails have been sent to all parents giving details of your child's log-in details for Google Classroom.

     

    If you, or your child, have any queries about using Google Classroom, or about the work set please continue to email your child's teacher using the class email address as before.

     

    Thank you.

  • Northwood Remote Learning Policy

    Fri 22 Jan 2021

    With school currently closed to most children the expectation is that children who are not in school should access the remote learning set by their teachers on the school website.

     

    There is a school remote learning policy which sets out the expectations on the school, parents and pupils.  The policy is available to read on the Policies section of this website.  Please follow the Key Information tab from the home page, select Policies, then Remote Education and Online Learning Policy.

     

    Thank you.

  • Expectations if your child is unwell

    Thu 10 Sep 2020

    We are delighted with how well the children (and parents!) have adapted to the changes when school re-opened this week.

     

    Below are the expectations if your child is unwell, particularly if they exhibit any of the symptoms of Coronavirus.

     

    • If your child shows any of the symptoms of Coronavirus (a new cough, a high temperature, loss of sense of smell or taste) you should get them tested as soon as possible. 
      • It is important to get the test done within the first five days of having symptoms. 
      • Stay at home and do not have visitors until you get the test result – only leave home to have a test. 
      • Anyone living in your household should also stay at home until you get the result. 
      • If the test result is negative, as soon as they are well enough, children may return to school.
    • If your child shows symptoms of Coronavirus whilst at school, we will telephone you to come and collect them.  You must then get them tested as soon as possible.

     

    • We appreciate that not every child with a cough or high temperature will have the virus, but I am sure you will understand that we have to act on the side of caution so we will ask you to collect your child and get them tested if they exhibit any of the symptoms.

     

    • Naturally, children will continue to have other illnesses not connected with Coronavirus at all.  Please follow our usual procedures if your child is unwell for any other reason and phone us to let us know that they won’t be coming into school and the reason why. 

     

    It is vital that we all follow the guidelines in order to keep our school, and community safe.

     

    Thank you for your on-going support.
