Why are school surveys important?

Give your community a voice

Making sure everyone in your school has a voice promotes a strong sense of community. Improving your relationships with everyone from students, to staff, to parents can be as simple as making sure they feel heard.

Collect honest feedback

Anonymous surveying is a fantastic way to receive feedback that’s truly honest. Without the pressure of judgement, respondents feel more comfortable to bring up real issues, allowing you to make real change.

Track and understand trends

Send out the same survey more than once, or adjust your approach over time to see community sentiment trends. Survey Builder helps you not just to view these trends, but to understand and address them.

Build a bank of perspectives

The members of your school community are a fantastic resource. Surveying allows you to collect a range of different perspectives from a range of different groups, leading to informed decision making.

Making real change

Survey results are an excellent motivator for implementing real change, backed by data. Get inspired to improve your school, all while confident that you’re targeting areas that will make a difference.
