Welcome to Queen Edith School

Dear Parents and Visitors,

Queen Edith 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 28 languages at the last count!).

Queen Edith is partnered in a federation with Queen Emma, which is a 5 minute walk away. It 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

Parents will be aware that both our schools will be expecting Ofsted in the next few months. If you could spare a few minutes to complete the Ofsted questionnaire it would be much appreciated.

Many thanks,
Caroline Peet

Superstan! Middle Years Production
Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s Superstan! For the last few weeks of term, everyone in Middle Years was working hard to prepare for our amazing production. The performances were wonderful, Click here to see more.

Children in nursery have been enjoying learning about spring and Easter.
We have drawn pictures of our families, made mother’s day cards, cakes and seed sticks and enjoyed singing a new song to mummies at our celebrations.  Click here to see more.

Children’s learning has been based on The Three Billy Goats Gruff this term. They retold the story, found objects heavier than a troll, though about time, acted out the story, grew cress, made bridges, painted trolls and wrote descriptions of the characters. Click here to see more.                                        

Year 1
We have been thinking about our senses. We went into the courtyard and thought about what we could see, hear, feel and smell. Click here to see more.                                            

Year 2 
2.1 made potato latkes as part of their Judaism topic. Jewish people make them during the festival of Hanukkah! The frying element reminds them of the miracle of the oil in the Hanukkah story.Click here to see more.

Year 3 
We had lots of fun in D&T making their own winding mechanism for a pirate ship. The winding mechanism needed to function as an anchor. We thought about the different parts we would need and then made them..Click here to see more.                                                                   

Year 4 
Year 4 had a great opportunity to learn something this term that could potentially save someone’s life. Dan from St John Ambulance trained us how to do an initial check, how to put a patient in the recovery position, and how to perform CPR. Click here  to see more.
