Previous Update



Northwick Park Primary Academy                         May 2022 (1)



Recently we have had a couple of issues on the school site.  Please remember that:

  • We do not allow dogs (even if they are being carried) on the school site.
  • Adults are NOT ALLOWED TO VAPE on the school site.
  • In the morning (unless they need to go to the office) the only adults allowed through the gates to drop off their children are daycare, nursery and reception.  Please give any urgent messages to the staff at the gate.

Thank you for helping to keep our whole community safe.


We are pleased to announce that we have been granted the highest award of a 'Green Flag' for all the work we have been doing as a school to help our planet. Our Eco-Family have been working on many projects from reusing uniform to collecting fruit waste for composting. We are going to continue with our ongoing projects and are eager to introduce many more.

Please continue to support us by donating and reusing unwanted uniform. Remember that we have a box located in the front entrance for any unwanted batteries that need recycling.  So far, we have 500+ but our target is to collect 1000 batteries to be recycled.  We are pleased that we have saved many items from landfill.

We would like to thank you for your continued support and we will keep you updated with our future projects.

From the Eco Team


Well done Year 6 – we all got through the week and every single one of you did your best!  I hope you all enjoyed your treat of crazy golf and ice cream.


27 Year 6 children and 4 staff had a wonderful evening at the O2.  They had worked really hard to learn all the songs that they all sang as part of a choir of nearly eight thousand children.  Well done to all of the parents who joined in the dancing with such enthusiasm.


The reception children enjoyed the opportunity to attend after school clubs.  They all gained 3 Children’s University hours.  When they have filled in their temporary passport (10 hours) we will replace it with their first Children’s University Passport to Learning.  Thank you to all the staff that ran the clubs for our reception children.
