At Briscoe Lane Academy we:

  • Understand that the quality of relationships and school climate area absolutely critical to successful student learning
  • Seek to establish strong meaning and connection for students, families and staff in social and academic contexts
  • Implement principles of mutual respect and encouragement
  • Focus on long term solutions at individual, class and school wide level
  • View mistakes as opportunities to learn and misbehaviour as opportunities to practice critical life skills

At Briscoe Lane Academy, children become part of a friendly cooperative environment where there is an atmosphere of mutual respect and trust. Every child is made to feel they have a vitally important role to play in the life of the school where their achievements are recognised and acknowledged.
