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



Dear Parents and Carers,
As you are aware HMI, Susan Aykin visited both our schools last year 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 short visits so many of the of school's strengths have been recognised.
We will be ensuring we continue to work on the areas suggested in the reports while also maintaining our commitment to seeing every 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


 

Nursery- The Train Ride
Children in nursery have continued to enjoy learning focused on ‘The Train Ride’ by June Crebbin. We made a story map together and children referred to this and became confident to recite some familiar parts of the story. Click here to see more.



Reception -  Lost and Found
