Warren was built to serve Chafford Hundred, a community of private housing and is now one of four primary schools. Chafford Hundred is convenient to reach by road, and has good public transport links to London and the coast. The school is within walking distance of Lakeside Regional shopping centre and Chafford Hundred railway station.

The school provides a safe and happy environment in which the children thrive and enjoy learning in a stimulating setting. The children are welcoming, polite, well-motivated and generally high achievers and we expect over 50% to achieve above expected progress each year and hope that this figure will continue to rise. They are confident and very proud to wear their uniform and represent their school.
