Welcome to Queen Emma School

Dear Parents and Visitors,

Queen Emma is the newest Primary School in Cambridge city.  Over the last three years it has become a thriving community school. Our catchment area covers Queen Edith, Morley and the Ridgefield area and our community comprises families from around the world with over 28 languages spoken in the school at the last count.

Queen Emma is in a hard federation with Queen Edith just a 5 minute walk away. It is led by one headteacher, senior leadership team and governing body with representation from both schools. For more information about the benefits of the Federation please visit the Queens’ Federation website.

If you are considering a school for your child I hope I will have the opportunity to meet you in the near future and that if your child is to join us they will have a long and very happy association with the school. We are committed to working in partnership with our parents and our desire is that you feel fully involved in your child’s education and the life of the school.

Yours sincerely,

Caroline Peet

Executive Headteacher

Year 2 - Wanted Posters
As part of our traditional tales topic we read Little Red Riding Hood. We had lots of fun learning the story, retelling it and writing it. Worried the Wolf was still at large we decided to write some ‘Wanted Wolf’ Posters. Click here to read more about this and other recent activities in Year 2.

Year 3 - Paisley Stamps
In one art lesson we created Paisley stamps by drawing a simple design on card and then sticking some string to the top of it with PVA glue. In the next lesson we covered these in paint and used them to stamp a pattern onto pieces of paper. Click here to read more about this and other recent activities in Year 3.
