Welcome to the website for Ann Edwards Primary School in South Cerney. We are very excited to be welcoming all of our children back this September, plus a number of new admissions and our wonderful new class of Reception children.
We will continue to update our pupils' families with regular updates relating to the Covid-19 pandemic both via ParentMail and on this site. Please also look out for updates to the new class pages once the children have settled in.
Below you will find a general introduction to the school as well facts about its history.
I am very much looking forward to working with you, the school and local community.
Please see below for our school tour video!
Welcome to Ann Edwards Church of England Primary School.
I would like to welcome you and your child to our school and I hope you find our website a useful source of information about the school's organisation, routines and the curriculum. You can also access all the latest newsletters and check out diary dates on our 'events calendar'
Ann Edwards is a Voluntary Controlled Church of England Primary School that caters for boys and girls aged 4 to 11. We have approximately 295 children on roll, in eleven classes. The arrangement of classes varies from year to year according to the number of children in each year group and the number of teaching staff.
We have a modern, well equipped building set in pleasant landscaped grounds. Strong links are maintained with the communities we serve and with the local church. Our Christian ethos provides a spiritual and moral context that helps children to grow into thinking, caring people.
The village of South Cerney is situated in the Cotswold Water Park, three and a half miles south of Cirencester, very close to the Wiltshire border. It takes its name from the River Churn that flows through the centre of the village, with a mill stream running parallel to it. It is said to be the largest village in Gloucestershire and has many facilities and activities of interest to children and families.
Children come to our school from South Cerney, Cerney Wick, Somerford Keynes, and other neighbouring villages. We also take children from the 29th Logistics Squadron and the Four Acres travellers' site. Our main feeder playgroups are South Cerney Playgroup and the Duke of Gloucester Barracks.
We believe that it is important for parents to be interested and involved in their children's learning and share in this responsibility with the school. We work in partnership with parents 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.
