About W@S website
The W@S website is designed to support schools to engage with the whole school community in a self-review process. There are two tool kits on the site. These explore:
- the extent to which different school practices promote a safe and caring school climate (W@S)
- the extent to which school practices are inclusive of all students (Inclusive Practices Tools)
The website provides access to practical evidence-based tools, resources, and services, a 5-step self-review process, and information about how to get started.
The website is managed by NZCER and commissioned by the Ministry of Education as a part of Positive Behaviour for Learning (PB4L). The Inclusive Practices tools on the website have also been commissioned by the Ministry of Education.
Schools can use the website to access to the following tools, resources, and services available to NZ schools:
