Aveley Primary School was formed in 1990 when the Infants and Junior schools amalgamated. From September 2005 to 2012, the school was based in one building built in the early 1950’s. Since September 2012, KS1 have been in the purpose built block of four classes. Reception are in classes linked to the main building with a shared outdoor area. The rest of the classes are in the original KS2 building, with some modifications to create a nursery class. In 2014, the school opened the library bus which is an iconic part of the school.  The school is spacious, with expansive grounds and is within easy reach (5 minutes) of the A13 into London/Southend and the Dartford Crossing. There are three playgrounds, a large field and a multi-use games area. There is a separate dining room and school hall. We have a dedicated Library and Art, Design & Technology Room, a wildlife area and pond. This is an exciting time in Aveley Primary School’s journey as we opened the Aveley Resource Centre (ARC) in June 2022.

Staff are dedicated, hardworking and supportive of each other. The school has a Pastoral Manager to support the wellbeing of the children. All classes have some ancillary support to work alongside the classteacher. Children with Special Educational Needs are well catered for with adult support and a non-class based SENCo.

The catchment area of Aveley Primary School is in a mixed housing environment; the school has approximately 30% of children on free school meals. Parents are positive about our school and work in partnerhip with us.
