As part of our continuous improvement process I wish to provide opportunities for parents, staff and students to provide us with comprehensive, confidential feedback relating to their views of the school across a wide range of areas.
The research is being conducted by MMG Education, a specialist education consultancy that works with schools in the areas of school strategic reviews and stakeholder satisfaction. MMG’s client schools include a large number of schools across Australia.
Parents, staff (teaching and non-teaching) and students (Years 6-12) will be invited to complete questionnaires in a two week period commencing on Friday 9 June, 2017. MMG Education will send out an email that will set out details of the timing of the survey and will provide individual access to the confidential questionnaire.
To ensure confidentiality and to encourage frank and full expression of views:
- All responses will be treated in strict confidence.
- Respondents will not be identified to the College by MMG Education on the basis of questions asked or responses made.
- All data collected by MMG Education will remain under its control and archived according to research protocols: The College will not be able to access it.
At the conclusion of the research period MMG Education will provide me with a report that I will review with the College Council. I will then provide opportunities for members of the College community to receive feedback from the research.
The survey is extensive and will cover the full range of school and staff related areas.
Please remember that, by completing your questionnaire, you will be making an invaluable contribution to the future of the College as we strive to ensure that we are providing the best opportunities possible for our students and staff.
I look forward very much to the College community’s participation in this important project and to receiving the MMG Education’s report.
If you have any questions about this project, please contact me.
