Welcome to James Cambell Primary School  

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 over 700 pupils and have a diverse multi-cultural intake. 


We encourage our children to achieve the best that they are capable of, whilst also ensuring that they feel happy and safe in their school environment.


We are a school committed to life long learning and believe that education includes more than just the national curriculum subjects. We aim to teach our children the skills necessary for living with others to create a warm, peaceful and caring community where empathy and engaging with others are hallmarks. Whatever their educational needs, I can assure you that your child will be well looked after by our dedicated, committed and very skillful staff.


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.
