A SAFE & INCLUSIVE SCHOOL
At Northwood, our primary aim is to keep our students safe.
We work closely with a range of agencies to ensure the safety of our students, including the local authority.
- The Hillingdon LSCB (local safeguarding children board) is committed to supporting children in the London Borough of Hillingdon. Please click here for more information for parents and carers with advice and guidance about safeguarding. Please also find the useful links page on their website.
Northwood School is proud to work with the Metropolitan Police Service in Operation Encompass. This project will notify the school Designated Safeguarding Lead when one of our students has been involved in, or exposed to a domestic incident.

At Northwood, we have a zero tolerance to bullying. We believe that no pupil should have to put up with bullying. Each pupil has the right to feel, and be, safe while at school. This is important for the pupil's wellbeing and also because children who feel safe learn more easily. If pupils are bullied it is not their fault and they should not feel embarrassed or guilty.
We will treat all incidents of bullying seriously and in a consistent way. We intend to educate bullies so that they stop bullying. We will definitely punish bullies if we need to in order to stop them from bullying, but in many situations we will be able to stop the bullying without punishment. Where appropriate, we will work with pupils who have been bullied to help them develop the self esteem and the skills to discourage others from bullying them.
There are a number of people students can talk to if they are worried about someone or feel unhappy in any way:
- Form tutor
- Head of Year
- Leadership Group

STAYING SAFE ONLINE
We live in a technological age, in which staying safe online is so important. But do we always know how to do that?
Whether you are a parent, or a student, there is so much to learn about how to stay safe online.
