This report looks at principals’ perceptions of how well primary and intermediate schools are resourced and supported, and their relationships with other schools.
The report draws on data from the NZCER National Survey of Primary and Intermediate Schools 2016 that was conducted from August to September 2016.
The survey asked principals how well they thought their schools were resourced through operational funding and staffing, and how well students are distributed between schools. It asked about collaboration between schools, including schools in Communities of Learning | Kāhui Ako. Principals were also asked what they thought of the support they get from government and their own sector organisations.
The NZCER survey got responses from a nationally representative sample of 349 English-medium state and state-integrated primary and intermediate schools.
