About Northaw Church of England Primary School

Northaw Church of England Primary is a small school located within the picturesque village of Northaw, in Hertfordshire. The school is located in an idyllic rural environment with fantastic outside amenities. Our proximity to Potters Bar and Cuffley makes us accessible for jobseekers from Greater London, Hertfordshire, Essex and Bedfordshire.

In December 2018, following a short-inspection by Ofsted, the school maintained its ‘good rating’ which was initially awarded in May 2015. The school was rated ‘outstanding’ at its last SIAMs inspection in March 2015. Our aim is for the school to achieve outstanding at our next Ofsted Inspection.

Every child matters to us at Northaw and the successful candidate will further embed and expand the strong pastoral support we provide for our children, to ensure that pupils develop their academic, personal, social, moral, spiritual and cultural skills.

We work closely with our associated church, St Thomas Becket and its vicar. We have a community feel achieved through the positive relationships built between school and home and through strong relationships with the local community. The School is especially proud of our links to the global community through Kiyunga Parents School in South East Uganda.
