We are an infant school in the London Borough of Havering, situated between Romford and Hornchurch. We are a three form entry school with 270 children on roll, aged 4 to 7 years. We share our school site with Ardleigh Green Junior School, to which the vast majority of our children transfer at the end of key stage one. The school was judged to be outstanding by Ofsted in 2010.

At Ardleigh Green Infant School we value every individual and the contribution they have to make to our school community. Children and adults are encouraged to learn and develop all their abilities within a caring, stimulating and challenging environment underpinned by our core values of excellence, enjoyment, respect and equality.
Our curriculum is constantly under review to ensure that children of all abilities reach their full potential. In 2014 the school received the Ten Year Basic Skills award. The curriculum is enhanced and extended through a wide range of trips, visitors and extracurricular activities. The school currently offers extracurricular activities for choir, recorders, football, basketball, netball, gymnastics and dance.
In addition to nine well equipped classrooms the school has a library and resource area, a welcoming entrance/reception area and a new computing suite. The school shares canteen facilities and an outdoor swimming pool with the Junior school, with whom the school enjoys excellent links. In 2009 the partnership with the Junior school and Havering college established Ardleigh Green Family centre which provides a range of activities for the community. This currently includes adult education ante and post natal classes, baby club, police and health drop in sessions and Ardleigh Green Community choir. The majority of children that transfer to reception visit the centre during the summer term to meet staff.
Children enter school from a wide variety of different pre-school providers. Most children transfer to the Junior school. The 2015/16 attendance was 96.2%. Holidays during term time are not authorised.
The school consistently achieves results above the national expectations.
