This Term, our school will 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.
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.
The survey is conducted entirely online at home or on public
computers. The survey will typically take 15 minutes or less to
complete and is completely confidential. The parent survey will
be conducted between 22 August and 21 October. Participating in
the survey is entirely voluntary, however, your responses are
very much appreciated.

The student feedback survey
You may remember that our students also participated in a Tell
Them From Me student survey in Term 1 this year. Asking
students to complete the survey twice in one year allows us to
identify trends in student responses as well as track engagement
and motivation across the school year.
The survey is a great opportunity for our students to provide us
with valuable and quick feedback on what they think about school
life, how engaged they are with school and the different ways
that teachers interact with them. Schools in Australia and around
the world have used the Tell Them From Me survey to help
improve how they do things at school.
The survey is conducted online and will typically take less than
30 minutes to complete. It will be administered during
school hours between 22 August and 21 October.
Participating in the survey is entirely voluntary and all
information is confidential.
A consent form and FAQs for parents/carers about the survey is
being sent home with students. If you do not want your child or
children to participate, please return the form to school by
Friday 02 September, 2016. Copies of the consent
form and FAQs are available here :
