Furze Infant School’s logo is three windmills and this is to represent three Post Mills that were near to each other in Chadwell Heath. These windmills were located in the area now occupied by the junctions of Edward and Alexandra Roads with Mayfair Avenue, close to the eastern entrance to St Chad's Park.
According to Shawcross in 'A History of Dagenham' there was only one mill in 1770 but in early 1785 the copyhold estate comprised two 'newly erected substantial windmills'. Two windmills are shown on the first Ordinance Survey one inch map (1805) and three on Greenwood (1825).
The three mills were known as Long Sally, Little Jenny and Miss Bentley. Long Sally was the tall mill nearest to Mill House; it was struck by lightning some years before its demolition when one of the sails was set on fire. The mills remained active for some 80 years. Long Sally was demolished in 1893, Little Jenny in 1902 and Miss Bentley in 1906.
On behalf of the staff, pupils and governors of Furze Infants and Warren Junior School I would like to welcome you to our federation. We are two schools working together under one Governing Body for the benefit of our pupils and the success of the community we live in.
We believe our schools gain from working collaboratively, more importantly, we strive to provide a seamless transition for our pupils between the two schools.
