  • PISA 2015: New Zealand Students Wellbeing

    Students’ educational outcomes can be affected by a range of factors from inside and outside of the school grounds. For example, students who are motivated to succeed have high expectations for the future, and those who have a strong sense of belonging at school tend to have better academic outcomes. It is therefore vitally important that parents, educators and system leaders understand and act on these aspects of student wellbeing.

    In 2015, the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) measured these and other aspects of wellbeing among 15-year-olds across 70 countries. This report summarises the main results as they relate to New Zealand students. Where relevant, this report also triangulates information from other studies to provide a fuller understanding of student wellbeing.

  • Patterns of student progress in the Intensive Wraparound Service

    Intensive Wraparound Service (IWS) is designed for the small number of children and young people with highly complex and challenging behaviour, social or education needs, including those with an intellectual difficulty. IWS in New Zealand is a relatively new and rapidly evolving service that began in 2009/2010. In 2014, IWS aimed to support up to 285 students with a further 50 students being supported through a combined IWS/Severe Behaviour Initiative.
