Welcome to St James' & Ebrington C. of E. Primary School
Please see a welcome message from Miss Alexandra Symondson, Interim Executive Head Teacher.
As Interim Executive Head Teacher, I would like to extend a warm welcome you all. I have a lot of experience working in large and small primary schools and I am currently the Executive Head Teacher of the North Cotswolds Schools Federation comprising Cold Aston, Longborough and Swell. I wish to extend a thank you to all the staff and governors for everything they do for the school and their commitment. I am excited about working with them in developing and moving the school forward. There is a clear passion and commitment to the school from the school staff and governors which is very warming to see.

We are sure that through this website you will be able to enjoy sharing our celebrations and achievements in the school and the wider community. We also hope you find this site helpful in providing key information about the school.
We are a split site primary school which means we are one school with two sites situated in the stunning surroundings of the North Cotswolds. One site is in Chipping Campden and one is in Ebrington; presently both sites teach Reception to Year 6. When applying for a place at our school, in addition to the standard application form, we ask that parents fill in a Supplementary Admission Form to determine a preference between the two sites. The Admissions Policy can be found in the "Key Information" section of the website. Whilst we are normally able to accommodate parents' choice of preferred site when applying for September admissions, this is not guaranteed. In-year admissions are also placed at the discretion of the Interim Executive Head Teacher.
As a Church of England School our values are at the heart of all we do. We strive to achieve high academic standards and offer opportunities for cultural and sporting activities. It is our strong belief that children learn more successfully if they are happy within their learning environment.
All the staff work hard to ensure that we offer welcoming, safe environments where the emphasis is on enjoyment as well as ensuring that each child reaches their full potential. Of course this means academic success but we believe strongly in celebrating every success – it is very important to produce well-rounded individuals !
