Queen Emma is a large thriving primary school and nursery situated in the south of Cambridge city. We have a diverse catchment area and have many families from abroad (speaking 42 languages at the last count!). Queen Emma is partnered in a federation with Queen Edith, which is a 5 minute walk away. It is led by one headteacher, senior leadership team and governing body with representation from both schools.

As an inclusive, welcoming and caring school, where every child matters, we recognise that all of our pupils have strengths and skills to celebrate. Part of our role is to help each pupil discover and develop these. Our school values, based on the ‘7 Habits of Effective People’ by Stephen Covey enable us to create a strong community spirit, where we can all grow in a supportive learning environment. Through the use of all of these values, we can all be the best that we can be.
