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.

    Vaping - support for parents
    It’s common for parents to worry about their children trying smoking, alcohol or drugs as they get older. However, in recent years, more young people have been using e-cigarettes, known as vaping. Children are trying vaping younger than ever and the risks are less well known than with other substances. Action for Children have published some information which parents may find helpful. Please follow the link below to find out more: https://parents.actionforchildren.org.uk/behaviour/challenging-behaviour/im-worried-about-my-child-vaping/

    Thank you!
    Thank you to all our parents and children for a brilliant first week back at our lovely school. Well done to all new starters for settling so well. I have seen fantastic work and behaviour from your children this week - they have worked hard. I am proud of them. Apologies to all for the middle gate late opening today - I have asked the site team to look at this first thing on Monday. May I remind all parents that the one way system is in use for the safety of all on our site. Please do not double back. Please follow the yellow arrows and remember that the path around the top field is just for Y6 children as the steps are steep at the far end. Wishing you all a lovely weekend and I'll see you all on Monday on the drive! Enjoy the sunshine Mrs Poole

    Online safety Update - Live Streaming
    Like a lot of digital services, live streaming really found its niche during the pandemic. With platforms such as YouTube, Facebook, TikTok and Twitch all offering routes to a vast online audience, young people have enthusiastically taken up the baton – streaming on subjects from gaming to sports to live shopping (yes, really!). Potentially having strangers among one’s viewers, though, is just one of many concerns. The attached guide has the key information you need to know. As always, thank you for helping to keep our pupils safe online.

As a school we want to support ‘Every Child, to be in school every day, on time, all day!’ If you are experiencing difficulties at any point throughout the school year, please contact school. Please take some time to familiarise yourself with the Home Farm leaflet which outlines the expectations around attendance at Home Farm and we have also included the Bradford Local Authority leaflets that explain the new processes across the Bradford District. If your child is unable to attend school, please contact the school office before 8.45am every day of your child's absence. You can call and leave a voicemail 24 hours a day on 01274 777020 or email attendance@homefarm.bradford.sch.uk When needed, medical evidence includes appointment cards, texts, call logs, letters, prescriptions.
