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

Alice In Wonderland

We are delighted to confirm that our next Saturday Theatre will take place on Saturday 9th June 2018 at Queen Edith Primary School. Pendel Productions will be performing their magical, musical adaptation of ‘Alice in Wonderland’. There will be two performances at 1.45 p.m. and 3.30 p.m. and doors will open 15 minutes before each performance.

Weather permitting the performances will take place outside on the Queen Edith school field, but if the weather is poor we will be at Queen Emma School in the Hall.

We look forward to seeing you all.

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 - Author Visit
We were lucky to welcome Tony Mitton, the famous poet and author to Queen Emma to perform poetry. Tony shared a range of his poems from funny ones, mystical ones, hip hop rhymes and raps! Click here to read more about this and other recent activities in Year 1.
Year 2 - Literacy
In Literacy we have been carrying on with the Talk for Writing approach, this time for non- fiction. The children have planned a persuasive letter and drawn a text map to go with it. They then learnt the features of the letter and acted it out. 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 - Rounders
We have enjoyed the fair weather by playing a combined session of rounders. Both classes had a go as a large group, and then we were able to create smaller groups for additional practise. Well done! Click here to read more about this and other recent activities in Year 4.

Year 5 - Tourism
In Year 5 the children learnt about the positive and negative effects of tourism in Kenya. To do this, the children role-played a TV interview, which included a member of the government (pro tourism) and a local farmer (anti tourism). Click here to read more about this and other recent activities in Year 5.

Year 6 - BMX Workshop
We had a great day with BMX cyclist Mike Mullen. He showed us some of his amazing stunts and talked us through the journey he took to become a professional. We learnt lots about 'flearning' and how this might us help in our schools lives. We also got to apply it when riding BMX bikes and trying out some stunts. 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.
