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.
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.
