Chancellor's Positive Behaviour for Learning System

At Chancellor's School our Positive Behaviour for Learning System aims to create an achievement culture through regular praise and reward. We want to celebrate the many successes of our students whilst challenging and dealing with unacceptable behaviour quickly and efficiently.

In line with the school's Positive Behaviour for Learning Policy, the rewards and sanctions are listed below.
