This is the first thematic report from the NZCER National Survey of Primary and Intermediate Schools 2016 and explores the involvement of schools in the new Communities of Learning (CoL).
The survey was conducted from August to early September 2016 and included a representative sample of English-medium state and state-integrated primary and intermediate schools. The survey gathers the views of principals, teachers, Boards of Trustee members and parents. Around two thirds of the schools surveyed were involved in a CoL.
This report provides an overview of the development and implementation of the CoL policy. It looks at schools' engagement with CoL, the experiences of early CoL and the different perspectives on how CoL are going.
