Staff are dedicated, hardworking and supportive of each other. The school has a Pastoral Manager to support the wellbeing of the children.
Aveley Primary joined the Catalyst Academy Trust at the beginning of February 2019. The Trust has a nationally recognised reputation for high achievement for all of its pupils.
Children with Special Educational Needs are well catered for with adult support and a non-class based SENCo.
