Parental satisfaction with their children’s school is an important issue in today’s competitive educational environment. Research has demonstrated that parental satisfaction is strongly correlated with student engagement and achievement, and that it is in part dependent on the ethos and values conveyed by the school, the quality of the leadership and management, the behaviour and well-being of students, and the handling of pertinent issues including bullying and harassment. However, school leaders rarely have a deeper understanding of the exact areas of concern and are often perplexed when they are required to take proactive and targeted action to improve parental satisfaction. The information gained from this survey assists school management to plan appropriate interventions, continue delivering and supporting services that contribute to parental satisfaction while addressing areas of concern.
The Parent Opinion Survey focuses on nine key areas:
Guidance and Support
Technology and Resources
Leadership and Management
Our consultants will discuss the most appropriate options for your school and we will tailor the survey to meet your needs as a school leader.
The survey will be set up online for you accessed via our website or a link we can send to participants (alternatively, you can email this link
yourself to selected participants). Each survey takes approximately 15 minutes to complete and once responses are received, we will analyse and report
on all qualitative and quantitative data. Your dataset is held confidentially and securely. To enhance confidentiality, we report aggregate results.
Our Educational Psychology team will analyse your data and report back to you.
You will receive an informative, concise, well-presented and easy to read report that accounts for each key component measured by the survey.
You will also have the opportunity to nominate the benchmarks that you would like to be measured against (e.g., sector, location, denomination,
single-sex schools, etc.), to reveal how your school compares to other school. Additional options include the availability of supplementary analyses
plus recommendations for improvement via our Educational and Consulting Psychologist team. To ease the presentation and discussion of the report outcomes,
you can elect to receive a PowerPoint presentation summarising key findings. Our experienced Educational and Consulting Psychologists are also available to
conduct teleconference feedback or visit your school to discuss the findings with you or the appropriate groups within your school.
We provide solutions that are specific to your school and help to address the core issues.
