We try hard at Bracken Lane to do more than merely instruct children. We try to create a caring community, an extension of the family, where both care and discipline are needed if a child is to grow up into being a valued member of society.

Through this personal development a child will establish positive attitudes towards acceptable and appropriate behaviour in terms of awareness of the need for self-discipline, self-respect, honesty, fairness, politeness and consideration and concern for others.

To this end, we have agreed policies and procedures in place to ensure that great behaviour and achievement is celebrated and recognised. Where behaviour falls below our high standards, we work alongside pupils and families to establish any reasons why and work on ways to improve.

Our behaviour policy, which also governs how our staff work with children at the academy, can be found here.
