This is an exciting time in Aveley Primary School’s journey as we open a new resource base from May 2022.
Aveley Primary joined the Catalyst Academies Trust at the beginning of February 2019. The Trust has a nationally recognised reputation for high achievement for all of its pupils and staff have embraced the collaborative nature of working as part of a MAT.
All members of the school community are committed to ensuring that children have a learning experience that is positive, encourages children to achieve and develop as well-rounded individuals. Aveley Primary School was formed in 1990 when the Infants and Junior schools amalgamated. From September 2005 to 2012, the school has been 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 purpose built classes linked to the main building. 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 Food Technology Area; Library and Art, Design & Technology Room, a wildlife area and pond.
In 2018, the predecessor school, received a requires improvement judgement. Since joining the trust the school has worked collaboratively to secure improvements in all areas.
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. The school has positive links with the local community, notably with church groups and the secondary schools.
The school has achieved the 10 years Basic Skills Quality Mark award, Silver Science Quality Mark and Silver Artsmark. The school has a strong school ethos, followed by all staff and children.
The Head of School, Governors, together with a dedicated and hard-working team of teachers, aim to provide the best education and a variety of opportunities for all of our children.
