Home Farm Primary School WEB READY 2

Welcome to our school's website

A very warm welcome to Home Farm Primary and our school website.

Home Farm Primary School is a two form entry primary school with a nursery. We pride ourselves on our caring and friendly atmosphere. Our school is a happy place, where children learn in a supportive atmosphere and all members of the community respect one another. We have high expectations for learning and behaviour. We encourage our children to aim high.

We are a central part of the community we serve. We love our diverse nature and enjoy celebrating the differences and the many things we share in common with everyone in our community.

We welcome visits to the school from prospective parents, applicants for jobs and others who have a professional interest in the work we do - we are always proud of what we have to show when people come to visit. Our visitors are always impressed with what they see.

If you need any further information, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

    Snapchat - how to keep your child safe online
    A free online safety guide on Snapchat. Snapchat is a photo- and video-sharing app through which users can chat with friends via text or audio. Images and videos can be shared with specific friends, or as a ‘story’ (documenting the previous 24 hours) which is visible to a person’s entire friend list. Snapchat usage rose significantly during the lockdown periods, with many young people utilising it to stay connected with their peers. The app continues to develop features to engage an even larger audience and emulate current trends, rivalling platforms such as TikTok and Instagram. In the guide, you'll find tips on avoiding potential risks such as sexting, visible location and contact from strangers.

    Parenting Programmes for Families
    Becoming a parent and bringing up children can be difficult for lots of reasons, and at times we could all use some support along the way. Bradford offer a range of fantastic parenting programmes that cover a variety of topics and are all based on proven methods. They are delivered by people from all different backgrounds, who do not judge and are simply there to support other parents/carers. We know how busy family life can be and so we deliver our programmes at various times; mornings, afternoons and even evenings! Their FREE parenting programmes are available for anyone living in the Bradford district. You do not need to have a referral from any other services, you can simply apply yourself. See the web page below for more information. https://fyi.bradford.gov.uk/information-advice/family-relationships/parenting-programmes-for-families/ We are aware that the Talking Teens course is available now and has spaces. It is held on Friday mornings at Reevy Primary School
