Students in Year 4-6 will take part in the second “Tell Them From Me” survey from 31 August-16 October 2015. Please see the note to be sent home this week and further information in this newsletter. Our school will also be participating in the Partners in Learning Parent Survey, another part of the ‘Tell Them From Me’ suite of surveys (student, teacher and parent surveys) on student engagement. The survey asks parents and carers questions about different factors that are known to impact on student wellbeing and engagement and complements the student and teacher surveys.
Running this survey will help our school understand parents’ and carers’ perspectives on their child’s experience at school. These include: communication between parents/carers and staff, activities and practices at home and parent/carer views on the school's support of learning and behaviour. This valuable feedback will help our school make practical improvements. If the survey response rate is low, results are invalid and cannot be used as authentic data. Please take the time to complete the survey. We are counting on parents and carers for their valuable thoughts and feedback.
The survey will be available from next Monday via our Skoolbag App and links included in the newsletter and on the home page of the school website.
