At Homelands Primary School we aim to create a happy and caring community and strive to achieve the highest possible standards, thereby enabling all children to fulfil their potential.

The School

Homelands is a primary school for children aged between 3 and 11 years old.  There are 210 children on roll and the school has a 52 place nursery with children attending for either a morning or afternoon session daily.

The Nursery

Homelands Nursery is a Local Education Authority Maintained Nursery attached to Homelands Primary School, catering for children aged between 3 and 4 years. It exists to provide Nursery Education through activities and play, and is staffed by a Nursery Teacher and Nursery Nurse.

The Building

The school moved to a new site and building in September 2002.  It was build under the Private Finance Initiative and the building is maintained and services provided by Jarvis Facilities Management.  The building is modern and airy and has eight classrooms, a hall and ICT suite, library, group room, food technology room and a meeting room.  As well as a playground Homelands has a netball court, playing field and a wildlife area. 

School Office

Our school office is run by our Administrator Mrs Andrews and our Assistant Administrator Mrs Lister.  The school office is open from 8am until 4pm Monday to Friday.

Attendance Policy

If your child is ill do inform the school office, either by telephone or in person before 9.00am.  All absences are carefully monitored and if there is any cause for concern, the Educational Welfare Officer will be informed.  If your child needs to be taken out of school during the school day for any reason, please sign your child out at the office and in again, when returning.


School Meals

School meals are available at lunch time (current cost - £1.50p per day).  Please ensure correct money for the whole week comes into school on a Monday morning in a sealed and named envelope. If you wish to pay in advance for the whole term please see Mrs Lister or Mrs Andrews. We discourage children from mixing school dinners with packed lunches as the children can be confused when the dinner register is called each morning. If your child is going to be late in to school and requires a school dinner please inform the office as meals are ordered on a daily basis according to the dinner register. Click on the link at the top of this page to see the menu.

Free School Meals

These are provided for children of parents in receipt of Income Support or Income Based Jobseeker’s Allowance or Child Tax Credit if annual income does not exceed £14,155.   Parents wishing to apply for free school meals should obtain an application form from the school office.  The fact that a child has a free school meal is treated as confidentially as possible.  Click on the link at the top of this page to see the menu.

Trip Money

Any money brought into school as payment for trips etc. should always be in a sealed and named envelope.  Please ensure correct money only is sent in as sending change home via children can be very time consuming and problematic.

 School Uniform

School sweatshirts, book bags, P.E. bags and caps are available from the school office, on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays only.  Click on the link at the top of this page to see our price list.
