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 - Wimpole
The Reception children had an amazing time at Wimpole! The children loved meeting the shire horse and even had the chance to stroke it! We saw donkeys, goats, cows, sheep and lots of lambs. We also saw the pigs who were very noisy when they were being fed! Click here to read more about this and other recent activities in Reception.

Year 1 - Lion Learners
As part of our Explorers topic, we welcomed David and Claire from ‘Lion Learners’ to Queen Emma along with their collection of animals. We had the opportunity to hold and touch a range of creatures including a rabbit, guinea pigs, a tortoise, a giant millipede, a snake and a tarantula! Click here to read more about this and other recent activities in Year 1.

Year 2 - Duxford Imperial War Museum
Year 2 went on a fun school trip to Duxford Air Museum. We got to go on the Concorde. It was very interesting. We found a plane called the Blackbird. It was famous because it was the fastest flying plane and the highest flying plane at that time. Click here to read more about this and other recent activities in Year 2.

Year 3 - Maths
Toucan and Macaw classes had a fantastic time visiting the Botanic Gardens in Cambridge. During the day they took part in tree rubbing and measuring, an observational walk, exploring all the different smells in the scented garden and drawing cacti in the greenhouses. Click here to read more about this and other recent activities in Year 3.

Year 4 - Angles
In maths we have explored angles. We first identified angles such as obtuse and acute, and then used our table tops to identify angles created with tape. Click here to read more about this and other recent activities in Year 4.

Year 5 - Volume
We completed an investigation based on estimating and calculating volume. We had to estimate the volume of a 3-dimensional cuboid and then make it using multilink. Click here to read more about this and other recent activities in Year 5.

Year 6 - Grafham
We had an amazing few days at Grafham taking part in lots of water sports and land based activities. The children really challenged themselves and worked together well. Take a look at some of the photos to see what we got up to. 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.
