School Climate Survey

Staff, students and parents completed a feedback survey, to provide data for the College’s future Strategic Plan.

I was really pleased to read the student feedback, which reported a high level of satisfaction with their feeling of inclusivity, staff support and feeling safe at school. The students also believed that the staff set high levels of expectation for them, which they value. They also reported clear rule clarity and they highly valued their peer connections.

The teachers reported a high level of job satisfaction, teacher efficacy, collegiality and support, for the College’s mission. In particular, the staff reported high levels of well-being and had no plans to leave. Parents reported they were well supported by staff and were very satisfied with their child’s progress. They also reported that the College was a welcoming environment, with excellent levels of communication.

These snippets of feedback give a positive outlook for the College and represent high levels of satisfaction amongst each of our stakeholder groups. There were a number of areas for growth, and the College will respond to these in its Strategic Plan, which is hoped will be completed, by the end of Term 1 in 2022.
