The aim of this research was to examine potential peer and
school predictors of peer violence on the sample of Croatian
primary school children. While controlling for gender, age
and school success, the aim was to ascertain which of the
selected peer predictors (number of friends, social status and
peer acceptance) and school predictors (school climate and
safety in the school surroundings) predict overall, verbal and
physical peer violence, and overall, verbal and physical
victimization. 262 pupils from 5th to 8th grades of primary
school participated in the research. The pupils completed the
Questionnaire of violence among school children, School
climate questionnaire and the sociometric procedure. Results
have shown that the selected predictors explain physical peer
violence best (31.9%), then verbal victimization (33%). After
controlling for individual variables, the number of friends,
social status and school climate were significant predictors of
peer violence, while the number of friends, social status, peer
acceptance and school climate were significant predictors of
peer victimization. The research has shown that peer and
school variables have a significant influence in predicting
peer violence and victimization. However, a significant part
of peer violence and victimization variance remains
unexplained. Thus, future research should examine some
other variables, such as the family and media, as potential
