School PTA

Get involved in fundraising

We have a thriving PTA here at Chandag Junior and hold a variety of events throughout the year. Our aim is to provide experiences and facilities for the children beyond those funded by the school. Our events are social occasions for both children and parents and we have a lot of fun.

We are always looking for new ideas, both to raise funds and give the children new experiences. The PTA is only as successful as the support it receives and we look forward to welcoming parents of children every new school year. You will be invited to the AGM in September where you will learn more about our activities.

We look forward to your support in the coming year.





Chandag Junior School latest Ofsted report October 2012

Amongst other things, OFSTED said that:

"Pupils’ behaviour is outstanding and enables
them to concentrate on their learning.
Relationships across all groups are good and
pupils show positive attitudes in a wellordered
and happy school. They feel safe,
know whom to ask for help if it is needed,
and have a good understanding of how to
keep themselves safe."

Annual parent/carer consultation


School policy and ordering links

The vast majority of our parents and children ensure that full uniform is worn every day to school; thank you for making the children feel proud of being part of this super school!

A small number of children are repeatedly attending with trainers (not school shoes), flamboyant hair bands (not plain, simple bands as we have stated before) or coloured nail varnish. None of this is appropriate for school and should be saved for the holidays. Any child not wearing the correct uniform will be asked to have a conversation at home with their parents and ensure they attend correctly dressed the following day. Parents will be phoned directly to address this. In the event of broken footwear we expect a letter from parents to inform us, and for this to be remedied the next weekend.

If you are unsure, please contact the school office for guidance.
