School Vision and Staff


Cassiobury Junior School Vision

‘learning to Learn, Growing Together, Ready for the Future’


Our school vision is designed to explain to stakeholders why we exist as a school and what we aim to achieve for the children in our care. This vision was reviewed during the 2017-18 academic year and took into account the views of pupils, staff and governors.
