Loving for Today, Learning for Tomorrow, Forever in Faith


“From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands.”


Acts 17:26

New International Version


At Northaw, we believe the world has never been without God. Teaching develops the security of pupils’ ‘fingertip knowledge’ in order to support historical analysis and argument. Pupils encounter rich stories and contextual details about the past, which make abstract ideas more meaningful. Adaptations for pupils with SEND are carefully considered and take into account the importance of background information in learning. We participate in Black History Month, promoting and celebrating black contributions to British society, and to foster an understanding of black history in general. Ofsted’s research review series has informed our practice in this area.
