EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: The analysis of questionnaire data from the Jade Speaks Up pilot programme over the period of 2017 to 2019, involved 3277 children aged from eight to thirteen years and 104 teachers from eighteen schools. Three schools have run the programme over two years and one over three years. Ninety-five percent of the children completed at least one of the three questionnaires (pre-test, post-test and follow-up) evaluating the programme. In 2018, children from Years five and six were specifically included in the programme which increased the proportion of 8-10-year-olds in 2018 and 2019. The cohort included substantial numbers of children from four major cultural groups (Asian/African, Māori, Pasifika and Pākehā/European). The schools, spread across New Zealand, included intermediate, primary, full primary, integrated and a high school with an intermediate section. The average decile rating of the schools was 3.26.
