Education Survey & Research Service
The EdSRS Survey Service
A full range of survey instruments used extensively in UK schools and academies for more than 25 years is available from the Education Survey & Research Service (EdSRS). This comprehensive time-saving survey and research service (which includes questionnaire design, detailed analysis of data and a full written report) provides schools and academies with impartial evidence for use in school self-evaluation and in the monitoring of school improvement initiatives. The EdSRS surveys of pupils, parents, teachers, support staff, governors and school community provide schools and academies with a means of consulting with and gathering the opinions of their stakeholders. The surveys provide reliable national averages, and longitudinal data which allow schools to assess changes in attitude over time. EdSRS surveys also offer schools the facility to add questions relating specifically to their own school to the standard questionnaires.

The service the survey team offered us was well informed, very helpful and extremely speedy. As returning customers we were impressed by the way our staff, pupil, teacher and support staff surveys were managed. The clear options, well laid out instructions and ability to get good advice over the phone was invaluable. We now have a clear view of what our stakeholders priorities are and we feel confident that our plans in school are well focused. (Deputy Head, Kesteven and Sleaford High School)
Thank you for your help and cooperation throughout the process of the surveying of our pupils, staff and parents. Your advice at the outset was very helpful and the directions given enabled us to run the surveys very smoothly. ... Once again thank you for your assistance during the process and for the team's efficiency on processing the results so quickly; we look forward to using your services in the future. (Sheldon School).
We found the pupil, parent, teacher and governor responses to questionnaires very useful for review and development.
We embarked on the survey as part of a school project on raising boy’s achievement. It provided us with many worthwhile areas to pursue – merits, sanctions, pupil-teacher relationships – which were further investigated. As a result, action was taken. Pupils enjoyed the exercise and appreciated the opportunity of consultation.
We find the survey very useful in a whole number of ways and are now beginning to see the benefits of changes over time.
We would welcome the opportunity to operate the survey every 2 years as it would seem an excellent way to measure trends.
