Sally Boyd, Linda Bonne, and Melanie Berg

This report looks at how student wellbeing and positive behaviour are being fostered in primary and intermediate schools.

The report draws on data from the NZCER National Survey of Primary and Intermediate Schools, which was conducted in late August and early September 2016. The survey asked about schools’ proactive approaches aimed at fostering wellbeing and positive behaviour, as well as how schools intervene when students need more support.

The survey sought the views of principals, teachers, trustees, parents and whānau.
