Education Survey & Research Service
The School Community Survey
Also available from EdSRS is the School Community Survey, which provides both an overview and a comparison of the views of the whole school community. This survey consists of a core of 30 questions, addressing whole school issues, which are answered by pupils, parents, teachers, support staff and governors. Up to 20 additional questions are then introduced to each group, addressing issues particular to them. The survey can be conducted on-line or in paper format (one double-sided A4 sheet with tick boxes for each group). The SCS survey report includes an extensive written report, a tabulated analysis of responses to all questions, a diagrammatic analysis of every question, a transcript of any comments, and comparisons with previous SCS surveys carried out at the school.
