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 building of four classes. Reception are in purpose built classes linked to the main building.
