Survey to give parents termly 'snapshot' of behaviour

The Department for Education has announced that a new National Behaviour Survey will be launched to give parents a termly snapshot of the state of behaviour in schools, including disruptive behaviour and bullying.

The new National Behaviour Survey builds on the £10 million Behaviour Hubs programme, which pairs up the best multi-academy trust leaders and academy heads with partner schools and trusts to help improve behaviour policies and outcomes.
