About the research

This evidence review synthesised the best available international evidence regarding approaches to behaviour in schools to. It produced a framework that synthesised theory about school behaviour and factors that influence behaviour. Primarily it reviewed the effectiveness of classroom-based and whole school approaches to behaviour, including assessing components of these strategies.
