HOME FARM PRIMARY SCHOOL
Welcome to Home Farm Primary School
I believe that Home Farm Primary should be the first choice for all parents and carers, in order to ensure that their children experience a happy, healthy and productive start to their school lives.
It is the school's ethos that every child that comes to us is entitled to receive the best education possible, in a caring, supportive and stimulating environment. The school works as a community to ensure that each child achieves their maximum potential, and that all children benefit from a truly rewarding and rounded educational experience. We invite parents to share the responsibility for their children's education by working together with us.
We love to meet prospective parents, carers and children in order that they can experience for themselves the exciting, progressive and happy environment we have to offer.
We offer tours for all prospective parents and children looking to join us when spaces become available or for each new Reception class intake.
The governors, staff and I are dedicated to offering a school where safety is valued, world and community culture is explored and with an overarching emphasis on learning through exciting opportunities.
We are proud of our school and believe that we can offer all of our children the very best start in life. We hope the information on our website is useful for you. Our office staff are always willing and available to answer your queries.
Come and visit us... we think you'll agree that Home Farm Primary School is a pretty special place for your child to be!
Mr R Potter, Headteacher
Starting school in September 2018?
If you have a child starting school in September 2018, come along to our Open Evening on Tuesday 21st November 2017 to find out more about Home Farm and what we offer. The event will run from 6:30pm to 8:00pm, starting with a presentation from the Headteacher at 6:30pm. The Open Evening is open to all prospective parents, but please phone or email the school office to let us know that you are coming. This evening event is for adults rather than children.
In addition to this, we can offer tours of the school to parents who live in our catchment area. The tours are taking place on Tuesday 7th November, Monday 13th November, Friday 8th December and Monday 8th January, with tours running at 9:15am, 9:45am, 10:45am and 11:15am. You can check whether you live in our catchment area on the Essex County Council website here. To book a space on a tour, please contact the school office.
You can contact the school office by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone on 01206 577430.

School meals - Autumn term
We will be continuing with our summer menu until the October half-term break, with the exception of baguettes which are no longer available to KS2 children. You can see the menu here.
During the first week, meals can be ordered each day at registration. From the second week of term we will return to pre-ordering a week in advance.
Just a reminder that for KS2 children, our meal price has increased to £2.20 per day. Meals for children in Years R, 1 and 2 are free.
