Headteacher's welcome

On behalf of the staff, pupils and Governors, I would like to wish you a warm welcome to Poplars Farm Primary School.  We hope you find our website informative and that it gives you an insight into life at our wonderful school.

We are a friendly and inclusive primary school in Bradford, West Yorkshire with 300 children, aged 3 to 11 years. In 2018, we began our journey to expansion; to become a two form entry school. This has involved the construction of a new, purpose built nursery, a two storey Key Stage 2 building and a fabulous stand alone arts space.

Our school motto is, ‘Together we aspire, learn and grow’. We strive to create a safe, positive and inspiring learning environment, where each pupil will develop a love of learning and an enquiring mind. Our engaging, creative curriculum sets out to challenge and motivate our pupils and enables them to participate in the widest range of high quality learning opportunities.

We place a strong importance on the development of every pupil's personal and social awareness. We provide our pupils with the necessary guidance and support so that they see themselves as unique individuals who develop as responsible world citizens. Embedded in our values system (GROW) are local and global perspectives to encourage an awareness and responsibility towards the world our pupils will one day inherit.

At Poplars Farm, we see education as a partnership between home and school and we place a great deal of emphasis on our relationship with parents. We believe that children learn best when home and school work together for their benefit.

I am very proud to be the headteacher at Poplars Farm Primary. We have the most dedicated and supportive staff team and fabulous pupils who work very hard to achieve their best in all aspects of school life. Visitors often comment on the warm and friendly atmosphere in our school and how well behaved and polite our children are.

If you would like any more information about our school, or to arrange a visit, please contact us.                                                                   

I look forward to introducing you to Poplars Farm Primary School.                         

Mrs Jo Speak,  Headteacher

Our GROW approach to the full opening of


G- giving

We will give priority to the safety of pupils, staff and the wider community. We will do this by minimising the risks brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic, balancing them against our school’s vision whilst considering the short term and long-term benefits to pupils and community.


We will value the emotional well-being of staff, and of pupils and their families, as they return to school, recognising the present and past impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. We will ensure that pupils access the full curriculum and reignite their love and enjoyment of learning. We will seek a current understanding of each child, in order to adapt and deliver our curriculum, and provide targeted support based on each pupil’s social, health, emotional, physical and academic needs. We recognise that pupils’ experiences since March 2020, will have differed considerably.


We will look to minimise disruption, inconvenience and emotional distress caused by future lockdowns, local lockdowns, partial closures or absences of pupils and/or staff due to self-isolation and/or Covid-19 related illness. We will build on the innovative working practices and curriculum offer that we developed during lockdown. We will maintain our commitment to high quality learning and achievement be it at school or when delivering learning remotely.


All pupils and staff will be warmly welcomed back to school. With a positive mindset, we will embrace ‘the new norm’ and look to ways to build school unity and a sense of belonging for each and everyone who attends Poplars Farm Primary School.

School will reopen to pupils on Monday 7th September.

Following the government’s announcement that schools will reopen fully in September, arrangements have been put into place following a robust risk assessment process, evaluating and building on what has worked since our successful reopening to further pupils back in June and July.

To date, this is the most recent communication from the government to parents and carers can be found here:
