The staff questionnaire which is normally used by OFSTED inspection teams was given to all staff (teaching and support) on our INSET day in April. Staff were asked to complete it anonymously and on their own and were requested to return the completed questionnaires to a ballot box. Staff were asked to answer from their own personal perspective, rather than give a collective view
A small working party looked at all the questionnaires, and collated the results in the form of graphs. There was a follow up meeting, led by working party members to go over the results and discuss areas highlighted for development.
Our aim is to publish the results on the school website.
Responses were received from 43 out of 46 invited to take part, giving a response rate of ninety-three per cent. The purpose of the survey was to help assess where we are as a school and to provide some footings for how the school might be improved. Obviously it would be great if all staff thought the school was as good as it could possibly be, but there will always things that we could do better. So as a form of self-appraisal this survey was about identifying any weaknesses, so that they can be addressed, as well as recognising all the things we do well.
The survey was designed in two parts, the first being a set of positive statements with tick box options to agree or disagree and the final question being an open question about the strengths and weaknesses of the school. The first produces a clear quantitative measure allowing the assessments of the different aspects of the school to be directly compared. This approach ensures that staff was not constrained by the questionnaire. The survey results are presented in two corresponding parts. The first is all the results collated into a table and the latter a set of charts showing the responses to the set questions. This report presents and describes the responses given by the staff.
For each statement there were four choices:
Table of results:
|Question number||Question||Strongly agree||Agree||Disagree||Strongly disagree|
|1||I am proud to be a member of staff at this school.||34||9|
|2||Children are safe at this school.||28||15|
|3||Behaviour is good in this school.||25||18|
|4||The behaviour of pupils is consistently well managed.||20||21||2|
|5||The school deals with any cases of bullying effectively.||21||20|
|6||Leaders do all they can to improve teaching.||21||20||1|
|7||The school makes appropriate provision for my professional development.||20||23|
|8||The school successfully meets the differing needs of individual pupils.||23||19||1|
|9||I know what we are trying to achieve at this school.||27||16|
|10||All staff consistently apply policies.||15||25||1|
|11||The school is well led and managed.||25||17|
Please note: Some responses were left blank; this is due to staff feeling they could not answer the question.
The results show that 79% of staff strongly agree and 21% agree with the above statement.
“I am proud to be a member of staff, I feel I am motivated to achieve and progress.”
Areas for development:
4% of staff disagree that the school manages behaviour well.
2% of staff disagree that leaders do all they can to improve learning.
2% of staff disagree that policies are consistently followed.
