Brief description Schools have a vital role to play in student achievement, health and wellbeing, particularly for disadvantaged students. How schools respond to student misbehaviour can greatly impact on students in the short- and long-term. This project will advance knowledge about the impact of school discipline approaches on students and staff. The findings will have important implications for Australian students, parents and teachers/educators. We aim to inform the evidence-base for school discipline approaches to encourage methods that assist students to remain connected to school and will ultimately improve educational achievements, school retention, and student and staff wellbeing.
