You can copy the footer.php file to your child theme and add condition to not display on home page.

if (!is_home() || ! is_front_page()){
    // All the codes which are not supposed to display on the front page or home page
  • Instead of child theme, Can i add this code the parent theme?

  • you can, but it'd not recommended because if you update parent theme then it'll be lost after you update the theme, and you will have to re apply.

Depending on your theme, Wordpress has a front-page.php file that will act as the home page if present and set. This would allow you to use it as a separate page template from the rest of your site.
