In 2013 Northwood Community Primary School was awarded the Artsmark for its continued commitment to the Creative Arts. This award was valid from 2013-2016.
The Artsmark was established to recognise schools across the country who are acknowledged as being committed to providing the best quality arts and cultural education, particularly across the four main art forms (dance, drama, music and art).
Only 11% of schools across the country hold Artsmark status.
Eco-Schools is an international award programme that guides schools on their sustainable journey, providing a simple framework to help make sustainability an integral part of school life.
The programme provides an ideal way for developing environmental awareness in the entire school in a way that links to many curriculum subjects.
