Wrap-around care

In collaboration with Chandag Infant School and ZEST, we are now running ZEST child care - after school childcare for families of pupils attending either schools.

A before school breakfast club will operate at Chandag Infant School and an after school activities club will operate from the Junior School. Both will be open to children from Infant and Junior settings.

Please contact the school office for more information.

School payments

ParentMail PMX

We have invested in ParentMail PMX which allows you to make one payment for all your children and for a number of items, including dinner money and trips etc. You receive an email receipt for each payment and you can see at a glance how much dinner money there is in your account. The school will not accept payment for any item in cash. If you would like advice about setting up PMX please contact the school office.

Get involved in fundraising to enrich the children's experiences at CJS

We have a thriving PTA here at Chandag Junior School 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.



Information and link to B&NES admissions process

If you are intending to apply for a place at our school then you may be interested to read our admissions policy (Pdf)

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.
