Aims of Northwood School

At Northwood we believe that school can make a difference to children. We aim to provide a caring, happy atmosphere and welcoming environment in which children are given every encouragement to become confident learners.

We aim to maximise the skills and commitment of staff, parents and governors to work as a team, sharing values, aims and strategies. We maintain a reflective approach towards school development.

We offer a broad curriculum, including and extending beyond the National Curriculum. Our main focus is on teaching and learning, with high expectations of children's achievement, differentiation to build on individual development, and equality of opportunity to ensure full access to the curriculum for all pupils, whatever their gender, race, background, or special need.

Children are encouraged to be self-motivated, to persevere, and to build on success as well as to learn from mistakes. We also help them to develop social skills which will enable them to work co-operatively, with discipline and respect for others, and to value the community of the school.


At Northwood School the children study a broad and balanced curriculum encompassing all subjects outlined in the National Curriculum.

Core subjects

Foundation subjects


Design Technology








Art and design








Religious Education

For information on the National Curriculum please visit the National Curriculum website:

Children also benefit from lessons in PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education) and Philosophy.


Instrumental lessons in clarinet, flute, brass, violin and viola are provided for about 18 children a year by Bexley Music Centre, from whom instruments are hired.

Sports club meets weekly after school. Swimming is part of the curriculum for Years 4, 5 & 6, and the school takes part in galas annually.

A gardening club is organised during Friday lunch time by volunteer parents.

Breakfast Club

Northwood School has a Breakfast Club which children can use for one hour before school each day. The club is open from 7:55 a.m. until 8:55 a.m. Monday to Friday.

We do aim to be flexible about how parents use the breakfast club. Children may attend every morning if you wish, but if you would prefer to use the club on an occasional basis, then this is fine too.

The charge for breakfast club is currently £ 1-50 per morning. Money should be paid either on a daily basis, or in advance for the week or month if you prefer.

Children can choose from:

Cereal plus toast and jam

or Scrambled egg on toast

or Beans on toast

There is also a choice of orange juice, apple juice, blackcurrant squash or milk to drink.

There are plenty of activities to occupy the children with board games, colouring activities, books, music and television.  

When your child comes to Breakfast Club you should bring them to the main entrance of the school and ring the bell to the right of the door, marked “Breakfast Club”. Children must not be left at the gate or in the playground.

If you would like your child to come to Breakfast Club you should complete and return a registration form. Places are limited, so if the club is full names are placed on a waiting list and we will let you know as soon as we are able to take them.


At the request of parents, and with their support, a form of simple and sensible school dress has been adopted. The uniform colours are grey trousers or skirt, white shirts and navy-blue sweatshirts. A “Northwood” sweatshirt can be purchased from the school, as can a school bookbag. Children must wear suitable and safe footwear (not trainers). They also need to have a PE kit of white t-shirt and blue shorts, together with plimsolls. A full list of uniform is available to all new parents. Children should not wear jewellery on the grounds of health and safety. We take great pride in our uniform and certificates are awarded each term to those children who have worn the correct uniform each day.
