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 six years it has become a thriving community school with all year groups from Reception to Year 5. 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 earlier this 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 inspirations teaching this year and wish all of them, the governors and all our families a lovely summer break. 
Best wishes,
Caroline Peet
Executive Headteacher  

Jump to it!
Our latest Saturday Theatre performance was 'Jump to it!' and was performed by West End in Schools theatre group. ‘Jump to It’ told the story of Claire who was so busy playing her computer game that she forgot about her real life. We had a lovely time watching and enjoyed the show.
