Welcome to Queen Emma School


Dear Parents and Visitors,

Queen Emma Primary School opened its doors to our first Reception Classes in September 2011.  Over the past seven years it has become a thriving community school with all year groups from Reception to Year 6. Our catchment area covers the Queen Edith, Morley and Ridgefield areas 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 federation with Queen Edith Primary School just a 5 minute walk away. The Federation 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

Dear Parents and Carers,
As you are aware HMI, Sue Aykin visited us last term to complete our Ofsted inspection. As a record of her visit she has written the attached letter about our school. Staff and governors  were delighted with her feedback and pleased that in such a short visit so many of the of school's strengths have been recognised. Please also find the letter from our Chairs of the Governing Body.

 

We will be ensuring we continue to work on the areas suggested in the report but also maintaining our commitment to seeing ever child thrive through the provision of a rich curriculum and excellent pastoral support.
My thanks go to all the staff for their dedication and inspirational teaching.

Best wishes,
Caroline Peet
Executive Headteacher

Reception - Road Safety
Reception children spent a day learning all about Road Safety. They started the day by thinking about how to be safe out and about. Click here to read more about this and other recent activities in Reception.

Year 1 - Castles
During our art lesson year 1 used Paul Klee as inspiration for painting a castle scene. Click here to read more about this and other recent activities in Year 1.
Year 2 - Drama
Year 2 practised using their drama skills. They were lucky enough to meet a visiting alien and travel into space. They looked for clues on the planets we visited. They followed instructions carefully and used their imagination when working together as a team. Click here to read more about this and other recent activities in Year 2.

Year 3 - Maths
In our maths lessons have continued to work hard to learn our multiplication facts and develop efficient methods for adding and subtracting. Click here to read more about this and other recent activities in Year 3.

Year 4 - Prayer
We were extremely lucky to have a year 4 child share their special words and praying routines with us all. Click here to read more about this and other recent activities in Year 4.

Year 5 - Tributaries and Erosion
We have been learning about tributaries and erosion. We now know that a tributary is a river or a stream which flows into a larger river. Year 5 demonstrated how tributaries are formed by creating a watery paint solution, which we dripped onto wet paper. Click here to read more about this and other recent activities in Year 5.

Year 6 - Benchball
We've had lots of fun in PE over the last couple of weeks taking part in a Year 6 benchball competition. We split into house teams across the year group and made sure we had a mix of children from both classes. Click here to read more.

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website.  We hope you will find all of the information you require and if you have questions or would like to arrange a visit to view the school or nursery please contact the school secretary on (01223) 714 300.
