Welcome to Queen Emma Nursery  

Dear Parents and Carers,

Welcome to the Queen Emma Nursery website.  The nursery, with its Cubs Room for children who are two and the Foxes Room for three year olds, opened in our newly built school in 2013.  The Nursery is part of the Queens’ Federation which comprises both Queen Edith and Queen Emma Primary schools.  Together they are led by one governing body and one leadership team. The sharing of expertise, resources and the economy of scale are all benefits of being federated schools.

Our nursery staff include, Mrs Anna Igglesden and Ms Anna Sinclair, who are both qualified teachers, and job share the running of the nursery while supported by our Nursery Business Manager, Mrs Karen Easey, as well as many nursery assistants.

In addition, to providing 15 hour and 30 hour packages  of free provision for all eligible three year olds, and offering 12 places to children entitled to the free places for two year olds, we can offer children additional flexible hours from 7.45 a.m. to 6.00 p.m. during term time.  We also run a Holiday Club for children from two years old to the end of Year 1, which is staffed by our well qualified and experienced nursery assistants.

As many of you will be aware HMI, Susan Aykin, visited both our schools last year to complete our Ofsted inspection.  As a record of her visit she has written a letter about our school, see "Latest Ofsted Report". Staff and governors were delighted with her feedback and pleased that in such short visits so many of the schools’ 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. 

If you are considering a Nursery for your child I hope I will have the opportunity to meet you in the near future and that if your child is joining us, you will have a very happy association with the Nursery.

Yours sincerely,


Caroline Peet
Executive Headteacher 
Queens' Federation
