Our Staff Surveys offer outstanding value and provide essential feedback from all your staff.
The most valuable asset a school has is the people who work within it. They know the school best and contribute the most. Their views are vital if continuous improvement is to be maintained.
We offer a wide variety of staff surveys which will inform your future planning and assist you with your school self evaluation. Staff surveys can be taken together, separately or as a mixture of questions within each survey area – this flexibility is a powerful tool for schools to capture their staff attitudes on vital performance areas.
Our standard staff surveys include:
Staff are the most valuable asset a school has. Investing in the health and wellbeing of staff raises morale, increases motivation, and addresses recruitment and retention issues. Our staff wellbeing survey enables schools to identify areas of strength and will highlight areas to develop.

Teaching and learning are at the forefront of current government thinking. Our combined teaching and learning surveys focus on the school’s core function: raising pupils’ achievement and providing high quality learning experiences. This staff survey enables senior staff and teachers to comprehensively evaluate the quality of their teaching and its impact upon the pupils’ learning.
The surveys included are:
- Teachers’ self review
- A review of teaching across the school undertaken by senior leaders
These enable you to compare the teachers’ views of their own practice with the overview of teaching from senior leaders. This identifies any differences and any whole school issues for development.
The teaching and learning surveys provide an in-depth view of senior staff and teachers’ attitudes in the following areas:
- Monitoring, observation & self-evaluation
- Effective teaching
- Assessment of and for learning
- Effective learning
- Pupil progress
- Pupils’ attitudes and behaviour for learning
- The learning environment
Use alongside our pupil learning surveys so that the views of pupils on their learning experience can be contrasted and compared with the views of teachers.
The quality of leadership and management is a key focus for inspectors as high quality leadership is seen as a key component of successful schools. Securing the support of staff is the key component of successful leadership.

All our staff surveys can be adapted to meet your specific needs either by amending questions or by adding some of your own. Free text boxes can also be added. In addition, an experienced consultant can provide a written report highlighting the key findings and areas for further development.
For all surveys the views of staff with different roles are compared so that senior leaders can see with absolute clarity the real perception of how the school operates.

Schools provide an online questionnaire to staff and pupils to fill in during inspections. Ofsted will give the school details of the online process when notifying them about the inspection.
Staff can fill this in until the second day of the inspection at 11am.
To see the questions the online questionnaire will ask, click here. The questionnaires are confidential and complement evidence that inspectors gather from talking to pupils and staff during the inspection.
