Staff Survey

Our Staff Survey – Autumn 2020

In October and November 2020, we ran a short survey across all our schools to find out staff thoughts and experiences of schools reopening and management during the COVID pandemic. The survey is a moment-in-time temperature check to guage staff opinions. We will run a second check around Easter 2021.



  • 79% of staff agreed that school had done everything they could to make the workplace safe and 94% knew who to talk to if they had concerns.
  • 79% of staff also agreed they were happy to be in school
  • 83% of staff agreed communications from the Trust and school had been good


Areas for thought

Wellbeing and workload was perhaps understandably viewed as more of a concern – we have been living and working through a pandemic. 1 in 4 staff raised concerns about whether their wellbeing was considered and only 72% of staff felt they had been able to carry out all of their non-COVID duties. Professional and career development also scored less well than usual indicating staff did not feel as able to access CPD and training during the last term.
