School Opinion Survey

School Opinion Survey

​The suite of School Opinion Surveys are undertaken each year by the Department of Education to obtain opinion information from parents/caregivers, students and school staff. The surveys are designed to help schools identify what they do well and how they can improve. Responses are confidential.

Opinions on the school, student learning and student well-being are sought from a parent/caregiver in all families and a sample of students from each state school.

Opinions on the school as a workplace are sought from all state school staff and principals. Additional questions are included for teaching staff on their confidence to teach and improve student outcomes and principals are also asked about their confidence to lead the school, including improvements in student outcomes.

The suite of School Opinion Surveys include:

  • Parent/Caregiver Survey
  • Student Survey
  • Student Survey for Special Schools
  • Staff Survey
  • Principal Survey.

Additional information about the surveys is located on the frequently asked questions page.
