ActivExpression School Surveys
Instant Student, Staff or Parent Surveys
Schools are becoming increasingly aware of the need to focus on issues related to personal and social welfare, care, guidance and the key issues of student and community voice. LEB Partnership Ltd can enable the efficient collection of quantative data from pupils, parents and staff to enable a development plan that moves the school towards outstanding care, guidance and results.
LEB Partnership can come into your school with tailor made questions, survey up to 250 pupils, staff or parents, with up to 50 questions, with instantaneous analysis in under fifteen minutes.The school informs LEB Partnership of the questions that they wish to ask. All participants in the survey are given an ActivExpression handset; the questions are then polled anonymously using the self-paced mode, whereby, questions can come onto the handset on which individuals can respond at their own pace.The process will take a maximum of twenty minutes; therefore, it is non-intrusive and can be implemented in assembly or a lunch break. This is simply the quickest and most efficient way for a school to survey pupils’ opinions and thoughts.
After the survey has taken place, the school is given a spread-sheet of the data straight away. An in depth report will be sent within a week of the survey to the school, this will highlight patterns and trends from the data, enabling the school’s Senior Management to create a quality assurance plan of pastoral care which is pertinent to the pupils’ needs.
Accrington Academy is an 11 – 19 comprehensive school in Lancashire. Accrington Academy has deployed LEB Partnership’s ActivExpression survey technology over the past year to enable the school to ask personalised questions, which are pertinent to the schools’ pupils. The process has collated data from two hundred and fifty pupils in three twenty minute surveys annually, asking up to fifty questions each survey. From the data, the Academy has been able to create a comprehensive plan of pastoral care and development for its pupils against which progress is mapped.
The following questions include the quantitative results and the Inspectors’ (Ofsted) wording attached to the quantitative percentage.
