This report looks at the work of teachers in primary and intermediate 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 teachers about what they are doing in classes; their school culture and support for their work; their achievements; their issues; and their workload and morale.
The 2016 survey continued our focus on how teachers were using aspects of The New Zealand Curriculum that was introduced in 2007.
The NZCER survey got responses from a nationally representative sample of 349 English-medium state and state-integrated primary and intermediate schools.
