This article reflects upon the position on behaviour and attendance leading up to devolution in 1999 and since then, to the present day. In order to achieve this task, the article has been subdivided into three sections. Part one outlines a brief historical perspective. Part two considers key issues surrounding the National Behaviour and Attendance Review (NBAR) period from an insider's perspective, as well as assessing the current state of play in this field. Part three further considers some of the strengths and weaknesses of behaviour and attendance in Wales, whilst considering aspects that require further research and development. The implications of all these three facets are discussed, as these may well have wider ramifications for governments and researchers from around the world.
