Staff Survey

Our Staff Surveys

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. A similar survey was carried out in May 2021, to follow up the thoughts and experiences identified in the Autumn term survey.

Highlights (Autumn 2020)

  • 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

Highlights from May 2021 will be available soon.

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.
