How can you make the right decisions for your school environment that ensures your teachers and pupils flourish? Ask them.
How well do you know your staff?
Do you know if they’re happy and motivated? Perhaps they’re not. If not, would they feel they could share the reasons why?
Understanding how your staff are feeling can be tough to navigate, but it doesn’t need to be. You need to ask your staff how they’re feeling and what underpins those feelings.
Regular, short surveys can give you a good idea of what your staff think of specific issues in your school.
If you want honest responses from staff, you must ensure you’re giving them the opportunity to give their opinions without fear of judgement or repercussions. Any survey needs to be anonymous and it should also avoid adding to their workload.
Once you’ve received insights, you then need to turn them into actions to make your school a great place to work. You also need to make sure you ask staff for feedback on the actions you have put in place. If you want to encourage regular participation in the surveys, staff need to feel they’re being listened to and getting something out of it.
Our staff engagement tool can help you measure if your school staff are happy, healthy and motivated. With it you can send short and anonymous weekly or bi-weekly surveys to capture how your staff are feeling.
It provides you with a very detailed understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of the school and helps you to put in place clear action plans to address areas for improvement. It’s easy to collect and understand teacher feedback and you can then track how your actions are working in your school over time.
