Welcome to Ann Edwards C of E Primary School

 

Welcome to the website for Ann Edwards Church of England Primary School. We are situated in extensive grounds in the village of South Cerney, in the heart of the beautiful Cotswold Water Park and close to the historic town of Cirencester.

I am very proud of our vibrant, child-centred and inclusive school. I hope you find our website a useful source of information about our school’s values, organisation and curriculum. You can also access all of the latest newsletters and check out diary dates on our calendar. Please also look below to find our virtual school tour.

We are a Voluntary Controlled Church of England Primary School that caters for boys and girls aged 4 to 11. We have approximately 235 children on roll, in eight classes.

We have a modern, well equipped building set in pleasant landscaped grounds. During the summer of 2021 we established a designated performing arts classroom, our ‘safe space’ sensory room to offer a quiet area for those times children can be a little unsettled, a new outdoor area for our Early Years Unit, relocated our Chilzone wraparound care provision and set up two new intervention areas.

Our curriculum extends beyond the National Curriculum to nurture our children, install secure values, stoke their curiosity, aid their spiritual growth and enable them to serve as responsible 21st century citizens. We have two trained Forest School leaders on the staff, our staff are undertaking whole-staff Trauma-Informed School training and all teachers are working towards their Level 1 Philosophy For Children qualification.

Strong links are maintained with the communities we serve and with the local church, All Hallows. Our Christian ethos provides a spiritual and moral context that helps children to grow into thinking, caring people.

Children come to our school from South Cerney, Cerney Wick, Somerford Keynes, and other neighbouring villages. We also take children from the 29th Regiment RLC. Our main feeder playgroups are South Cerney Playgroup and the Duke of Gloucester Playgroup.

In our parent/carer survey in July 2021, 100% of responders said that they would recommend our school to another parent.

We work in partnership with parents and carers to ensure that children make the very best of their time at Ann Edwards School, so that they look back on their primary schooldays with pleasure.
