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 45 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.

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.

Year 3 had a wonderful trip yesterday to Hall Farm, Bury St Edmunds as part of our ‘Growing in East Anglia’ topic. We got to see how potatoes, onions and wheat are grown and harvested and we are very grateful to the Farmers for their time and generosity, for the “BEST trip EVER!” https://t.co/TiNWmBFmqG

Laura and Adrian spent the afternoon doing drama with us last Friday! We tracked down lost hunter-gatherer tribe members through a blizzard using bullroarers and sneakily stole eggs from the giant terror bird! An exhausting afternoon! Thank you @ImaginingHist! https://t.co/hjofD21wiu
Year 3 had a very special, small, prickly visitor today! Tommy visited Year 3 with Jill & Katie, to teach us about how we can look after hedgehogs. Jill runs a very busy Hedgehog Hotel in Suffolk, nursing hedgehogs back to health. Thank you for bringing Tommy to Queen Edith! https://t.co/8Q4IEHs5WR
