School stories

In this section you'll find: 

  • narratives that show how schools in partnership with Police have implemented school-wide interventions to address issues that impact on student achievement and student safety
  • other stories about educators developing effective teaching and learning activities with a goal of preventing issues that impact on student achievement or safety; or students taking action for the safety of themselves, their friends, whānau, family and community/iwi.

School-wide intervention narratives

Each year Police and schools submit narratives, or case studies,  of how individual schools, in partnership with Police, address identified and prioritised problems that are impacting on student achievement and student safety.
