Welcome to James Cambell Primary School  


Dear Parents/Carers,


On behalf of the governing body, staff and children, I welcome you to The James Cambell Primary School website. We are a large primary school with 900 pupils and have a diverse multi-cultural intake. 


Since amalgamating in January 2012 we have seen a rapid improvement in Key Stage 2 results. We wish to continue that journey, with your support, in order to improve the outcomes for our pupils. As a school we take the views of parents seriously and I hope you will take time to read the document about the leadership and management of our school. Like a good engine in your car we are working away often unnoticed to support the teachers in delivering quality teaching to your children and hopefully you will see the shiny Rolls Royce at the end!


We are very proud of our uniform and how smart our children are and would like to thank you for your help in this. Our Ofsted in June 2015 found our pupils to have a positive attitude to learning, and are respectful, well mannered and have a strong appreciation of what is right and wrong. The strong leadership was recognised by Ofsted and we continue alongside the Governing Body to improve further.


These outcomes cannot be achieved without high expectations about behaviour and in particular learning behaviours. We have a strict Behaviour Policy that rewards children as well as clear sanctions for poor behaviour. This policy can be found on our website.


Members of the Senior Leadership Team can be found on the playground in the morning before school. We are happy to meet parents and ask that you meet with teachers and phase leaders if you have any concerns about your children.
