About Aveley Primary School

Aveley Primary School – March 2021

Aveley Primary School is set in large and extensive grounds on the periphery of Aveley Village, in Thurrock Education Authority. It is within easy reach (5 minutes) of the A13 into London/Southend and the Dartford Crossing.

In September 2005 KS1 and KS2 came together in one building. The original village school building has been developed into the local Children’s Centre. The school has close links with the Early Years providers based in the Centre.

The school has grown in size again over the last few years and is now a full two form entry school with extra bulge classes currently in Year 4 and 5. The school also opened its own Nursery class offering 15 hours a week in 2016.

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.

The catchment area of Aveley Primary School is in a mixed housing environment; the school has approximately 25% 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 Headteacher, 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.
