Continuous Learning Plan - Pulse surveys

During the implementation of our Continuous Learning Plan (CLP), the school uses surveys to check in with students, staff, and parents about the experience of learning from home. Pulse surveys are commonly used in a range of organisational, community and business contexts as a way of monitoring participation and engagement in specific programs, projects and services. Given our ongoing need to respond to the current health crisis, the school uses the surveys to effectively and efficiently gather a full range of perspectives and insights into the operation and impact of the CLP over time. The data and feedback we receive from the surveys help inform the development and fine-tuning of the CLP and our approaches to teaching and learning online.

Unfortunately, the recent spike in the spread of COVID19 in Victoria has meant that we have needed to extend our time in remote learning. For this reason, the school will continue its use of pulse surveys this term, checking in with our students, teachers and parents about their experience of the CLP in the week ahead. The surveys will be short in length, easy to complete, and focused on a range of important topics relevant to our current context, with a particular interest in student learning, wellbeing, and engagement. We were delighted with the survey completion rates last year and kindly ask parents to continue to engage with the survey series this time around, so we can work in partnership to sustain and improve our support for student learning. Survey links for parents will be sent out as part of the correspondence from the Principal, so please look out for upcoming opportunities to engage with us.
