At Farne Primary you will find a warm, welcoming and happy environment. Our parents are overwhelmingly positive and supportive about their children's education. Many of our teaching staff have been here a number of years and this continuity has enabled us to forge well established links with the community.

We have high expectations of excellent behaviour, kindness, respect and good manners from our children. In return our children feel safe and highly valued within our small, caring school community. We believe that we can create a truly outstanding school built on secure foundations of excellent teaching, a daring, memorable, creative curriculum and consistently high academic attainment and progress for all learners.

Our school motto is 'Bring Out Your Brilliance’.
