At Ann Edwards Primary School we are committed to ensuring all pupils have access to a wide range of sports.
We believe that all children should have access to quality sports, be outside as much as possible and be encouraged to try new activities. We are fortunate enough to have fantastic school grounds, excellent local network links, and qualified staff to support this. Our PE leads and the whole school team are constantly looking for opportunities for our children. Our sports commitment is also embedded through a wide range of after school club opportunities and residential visits.
We are currently working in partnership with Swindon Town Community Foundation who work closely with pupils and staff to improve our sport provision. Children partake in a variety of sporting activities within school with Swindon Town Community.
Our thanks to all adults who support us and to our children for their continued ‘can do’ attitude and willingness to try new things!
Sporting Events 2023-2024
On Wednesday 27th September we took a group of our KS2 children to Cirencester Kingshill Secondary School to take part in a cross country event with other primary schools. The children had such fun representing the school at this event with great sportsmanship shown by them all cheering on their friends and other schools.
On Wednesday 4th October eleven UKS2 girls represented Ann Edwards in a girls football tournament. All the girls played in a wide range of positions and represented our school with pride. It was lovely to see the girls play with smiles on their faces, even when a goal down and they kept trying throughout all their matches. They finished joint 3rd and the girls are hoping to play again soon.

Ann Edwards FC at Swindon Town vs Crewe Alexandra – Saturday 19th November 2022
Thanks to the partnership we have with Swindon Town Community Foundation, some of our children had the opportunity to join in a mini-tournament at Swindon Town’s home ground before their match against Crewe Alexandra. They all put in so much effort and a fantastic time was had by all. After the tournament the children took part in flag bearing on the pitch with the players and coaches. We are really grateful to Swindon Town for giving this opportunity to the children.
