Thames View Infants is a vibrant multi-cultural Infant Academy, located within the London Borough of Barking & Dagenham. The school is situated on Bastable Avenue, located in a central position on Thames View Estate. The Estate is bordered to by the A13 (to the North), the River Thames (to the South), Renwick Road (to the East) and River Road (to the West).

The School may be reached by EL1 and EL2 from Barking Station. Barking Station is served by National Rail (C2C), London Overground and London Underground (District and Hammersmith & City Lines).

Parents and visitors are very welcome at Thames View Infants; however, to ensure children's safety the site is locked during core school hours.

The entrance to the Infant School is located on Bastable Avenue, opposite the site of the old 'Short Blue' pub.  The school has car parking facilities for visitors, but additional spaces are available along Bastable Avenue, including specially school-branded "park and stride" bays for parents.

The entrance to our school is opposite the blue school gates. Upon arrival, please press the buzzer, located beside the main gate. You will be asked to identify yourself and then be greeted by our Office Staff.  We apologise if sometimes you have to wait but we will make every effort to answer quickly.

It is important that we know who is on the premises at all times and that we follow safeguarding proceedures.

You can call school at any time. The office is normally staffed between 8:30-4:30, but outside of these times (and if our office staff are away from their desks), you will be able to leave a message - should this be the case, we will get back to you as soon as possible. Our friendly office staff will do their best to answer your query and direct you to someone who can help more. If you need to speak to the Headteacher, and he is unavailable, Kelly Ager (his PA), Claire Smith (the Deputy Head) or another Senior Member of staff will try to help you in his absence.  If you are running late or wish to inform us that your child is poorly, you can text us on 07943922655.
