Nursery and Reception Places for 2020

We will be contacting all parents with school starting information packs and how to prepare your child for their year group.  Exact starting dates and times will be given when we have more guidance. Thank you for your patience. 



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.

    Mrs Poole's Monday Message
    Good morning everyone. Is it really Monday again!? This will be my last task for a few weeks as on Friday we would normally be fully closing for our Spring Bank Holiday. It will also be the last week of your teachers sending you home learning activities for a while. When we do reopen home learning provision will be reduced as most teachers will be back in school. I will be in touch with parents this week regarding our wider reopening plans. The government guidance for schools is still changing regularly. Please be assured that I am under no illusions of the massive importance of getting our school phased reopening right. Only the safest options for children, staff and parents will be introduced. We will do this slowly and cautiously, starting with smaller groups from one year group at a time and we will not introduce more children until it is safe to do so. My task this week is about new skills. I’d like you to think about the last few months and tell me about a skill you’ve learned or developed during your time away from school. This will be completely different for everyone. Maybe parents could join in too? The idea for this task came to me as I was cutting Mr Poole’s hair for a third time this weekend. At first I was quite nervous about doing it, now I just get on with it and I think I’ve done a great job - he looks rather handsome! Please share with me your new skills, new hobbies or new interests that you didn’t have before. I hope all our families are keeping well, thank you as always for your support of our school. We received the most gorgeous message from a parent yesterday and we received chocolates last week! Your kindness genuinely gives myself and the staff a boost - thank you it means the world to us Much love Mrs P x

    Mrs Poole's weekly challenge
    Hello everyone! It''s Monday again! First of all thank you so much for your key hole pictures from last week - there was some great art work going on. You're a clever lot. My challenge this week is inspired by a conversation I had (across the front lawn of course!) with the little girl who lives next door to me. We were talking about her favourite books and her favourite characters and who she would be. She told me that she would be Matilda. I said I would be the witch from the Room on the Broom as she's good at problem solving and there's a place on her broom for everyone - just like me with our school. She makes the most of everyone's talents and is friendly and kind. I also would love to talk in rhyme and wear a cape! Send me your ideas and maybe some pictures - you could write and draw or even dress up! - Get creative. office@homefarm.bradford.sch.uk - For Mrs Poole Much love and take care Mrs P

    PM announcement
    Good morning everyone, I do hope you are all well. I wanted to share with you that we heard the announcement that schools may open to certain year groups in June at the same time as you. The school and Governors were not given any information regarding the Government's plan before last night. You probably and rightly have the same hugely important questions and concerns that we do. At the moment there are few answers. We are waiting for further guidance from the Government and Local Authority over the next few days about exactly what the announcement means for us here at Home Farm and how we can open keeping our children and our staff safe. It is very difficult to plan with any clarity until then. As soon as we have further information we will share that with you as clearly as we can. Until then, in the short term - nothing has changed. Keep your children safe and at home. Kindest regards, Mrs Poole

    Good Morning Home Farm 🤗
    Good morning everyone, I do hope that all our families are staying safe and keeping well. I’m missing you all very much and can I say thank you to all who are sending messages and photos to keep in touch; it’s lovely to see you and hear your news. Can I also thank those who have sent good wishes and thanks to staff in support of everything we are doing at the moment. It means the world to us to know we are so appreciated. There has been lots of speculation by the media over the weekend about schools reopening in June. At the moment nothing has been confirmed to schools or any information given by the Local Authority or the DfE. We can begin to look at plans for how this could work for us at HF, but until a decision is made by the Government, we can not confirm anything more at this point with staff or parents. I will of course be in touch if I have any information. So, on to my challenge for you all this week - it has an art theme and I’d like you to let your imaginations run wild! I’ve attached two keyhole pictures as a guide - what will be at the other side of your keyhole? I can’t wait to see! Photos as always to the office@homefarm.bradford.sch.uk email - marked for Mrs Poole please. Take care and much love Mrs P x

    Good morning HF!
    Good morning everyone. I hope you are all well and have been enjoying the lovely sunshine. HF I have a new challenge for you. This one has a number theme and came to me whilst I was enjoying a Bounty yesterday! Bounties come in pairs. You get two in every pack. Doubly yummy! For our younger children can you find 10 things that come in pairs? For our older children can you find things that always come in 1s, 2s, 3s, 4s etc. What the highest number you can get to? Photos and answers to Mrs Poole at office@homefarm.bradford.sch.uk Well done to all who entered last week. I loved seeing your ideas and your photos. Take care, much love Mrs P x

    Welcome back everyone!
    A very good morning to you all and welcome back. I hope you have had a safe and happy Easter. Your teachers will be contacting you about your home learning activities but I thought I would set you one of my challenges to mark the start of the new term. You have until this Thursday at 3.15 to complete, which means I really want you to think about it, think outside the box and be creative. Don’t rush... This one is a scavenger hunt using your house, your garden and maybe even your daily walk. Photos and answers to Mrs Poole - office@ homefarm.bradford.sch.uk I love looking at your responses and hearing from you as I’m missing you all very much. So come on Home Farmers, get hunting and find for me: 1. Something which is noisy 2. Something which is gold 3. Something with lots of letters in it’s name 4. Something with lots of leaves 5. Something with all the colours of the rainbow 6. Something that is smelly Most of all, stay safe, enjoy and have fun! Much love to all Mrs P x

    Happy Easter!
    Good morning everyone Today would normally be the last day of the spring term and we would be closing our doors for the Easter holidays. Teachers will not be setting work for the children for the next two weeks but please feel free to use the resources, complete any tasks and continue to read with your child daily if you would like to. I know some of your teachers have already been in touch about this. Please have as much lovely family time as possible and look after each other. Thank you so much for your support and understanding over the past few weeks. It has meant the world to myself and the staff to have our community behind us. Take care everyone, much love Mrs Poole
