Impact of pupil behaviour and wellbeing on educational outcomes

The impact of pupil behaviour and wellbeing on educational outcomes

The Department for Education have published research on the link between wellbeing, troublesome behaviour, and academic achievement. The report examines how dimensions of children's wellbeing at ages 7 to 13 are linked to concurrent and later educational outcomes at ages 11 to 16.

Key Findings include:

  • Children with higher levels of emotional, behavioural, social, and school wellbeing, on average, have higher levels of academic achievement and are more
    engaged in school, both concurrently and in later years.
  • Children with better emotional wellbeing make more progress in primary school and are more engaged in secondary school.
  • Children with better attention skills experience greater progress across the four key stages of schooling in England. Those who are engaged in less troublesome behaviour also make more progress and are more engaged in secondary school.
  • Children who are bullied are less engaged in primary school, whereas those with positive friendships are more engaged in secondary school.
