Careers at Chandag Junior School - Keynsham, Bath and NE Somerset, BS31 1PQ

Welcome From The Headteacher

I am proud to welcome you to our delightful school. The children at Chandag Junior School are at the very heart of everything we do and our pedagogical approach is rooted in our passionately-held values which underpin our work with them every day. We believe our children flourish because we focus on exciting a desire to learn from every experience and we know that life-long achievement is a balance between emotional, social and academic success.

Mr Tim Dunning


Vision & Values

Values and ethos statement:

Our ‘Golden Values’ are a set of consistent principles that reflect common human decency and good citizenship, which align the ‘moral compass’ of every child and adult in our delightful school. This civilised guide enables us to confidently navigate the British and global societies in which we live, and be respectful, responsible and trustworthy citizens with true integrity.

Our aim is to establish the highest standards of behaviour possible to facilitate positive learning and attitudes for our pupils within an environment which reflects this. As such, we strive to make Chandag Junior School a safe and happy place which is welcoming, caring and supportive to enable positive learning experiences for all, and for our pupils to flourish personally, socially, and academically.

We value:

  • Honesty to ourselves as well as other people

  • Kindness treating people in a way in which we want to be treated.
  • Empathy listening with an understanding of how others may feel.
