Cambell Primary Centre is a time limited, additionally resourced provision (ARP) of The James Cambell Primary School. We work with children and families across Barking and Dagenham. We are a service for children with significant and enduring Social, Emotional & Mental Health Difficulties, who are not meeting their full potential in school because their behaviour, or emotional state is stopping them from learning.


We work in partnership with each child's mainstream school with an aim to eventual re-integration, usually after two to three terms.


Lessons within the centre follow the National Curriculum but also have an additional focus on "Emotional Literacy" and "Social Skills" with lots of opportunities for reflection on behaviour. There is a consistent positive behaviour management policy in place, with a clear set of rules, rewards and consequences to help modify their behaviour.


The aims of the centre are:


  • To provide a thorough and ongoing assessment of each childs needs
  • To provide time limited, personalised support to children whose SEMHD needs exceed

   the resources of the mainstream school

  • To equip children with the tools they need to learn
  • To use multi-agency links to provide the highest quality support packages for families
  • To support children with reintegration back into mainstream school or make recommendation for

   an alternative specialist provision
