National School Roll Projections

National School Roll Projections Projections and forecasts of school rolls are used by the Ministry of Education to assess the demand for resources in the school sector. They support the forecasting of expenditure on teachers’ salaries, schools’ operations grants, and student allowances, as part of the Government’s five-year budget forecasts. The forecast rolls are snapshots; they project primary year-levels as at 1 July and secondary year-levels as at 1 March. The production of a range of projections allows for exploration of medium and long-term effects of different scenarios or assumptions, while forecasts (based on preferred projections) are a best estimate of enrolment numbers in the short term.

These reports include a breakdown of the major changes between the current forecast and the previous forecast. A brief description of the methodology used in the forecast is also provided.

Data on students taught by Resource Teachers: Literacy (RT:Lits) and their precursors, the Resource Teachers of Reading (RTRs) have been collected and analysed each year since 1992. RT:Lits offer specialist assistance to primary and intermediate level school students (mostly six to twelve-year-olds) with moderate difficulties in reading and written literacy, and oral language. The data provide valuable information for commenting on these children and for policy makers in making sound decisions about the work and role of the Resource Teachers: Literacy.

Completely Different or a Bigger Version? Experiences and Effects of the Transition to Secondary School

Completely Different or a Bigger Version? Experiences and Effects of the Transition to Secondary School Most of the Competent Children, Competent Learners study sample changed school when they went on to secondary level. This transition often involved some marked change in the characteristics of the school they attended—moving to a much larger school, or to a single-sex school. Friends were often lost in the process—but they were also gained. But secondary school offered students a wider range of experiences, rather than a totally new world.
