Parent / Caregiver engagement survey
Recently you may have received correspondence from the Department for Education informing you about the annual parent engagement survey. The parent engagement survey is an annual, voluntary survey for parents and caregivers. It aims to measure the level of engagement parents have with their child’s school.
The survey asks families about how they perceive their child’s school, including how well the school:
- supports their child’s learning and wellbeing
- communicates with students and families.
Survey results will help us understand:
- what we are doing well
- where we can improve
- what’s important to parents and caregivers.
The survey will be open for 4 weeks, from Monday 2 August to Sunday 29 August and is open to parents and caregivers of school-aged children and young people. It takes less than 10 minutes to complete.
Personal information and the identity of participants (and their children) will remain anonymous. Survey results will inform school improvement planning and will form part of the school’s annual report. The department will use the feedback to help achieve our goal of world-class education in South Australia.
You can learn more about the purpose and timing of the survey, and how the school and the department can use the results by accessing survey on parent engagement with schools.
I encourage parents/caregivers to participate in the survey.
