Australian School Climate Measurement Tool (survey)
We request your participation in an important survey about the climate or social environment at Maribyrnong Primary. The aim is to hear from parents/carers about their experiences as a member of this school community. This survey looks at more areas in detail than the school satisfaction survey, such as relationships with teachers, connection to the school (school identification), and engagement in school life. While we will endeavour to combine the two surveys in the future, it is important for our school improvement process that we receive a strong response to both surveys this year.
Relationships – being valued, respected and listened to in our dealings with others.
Connection – a sense of belonging and connection to the school and what it stands for.
Engagement – investment in and enthusiasm for school
Your responses are extremely useful and valuable in finding out what we do well and where we can improve as a school community.
The surveys open on Monday 26 May and close on Friday 4 July 2014.
The parent/carer survey can be accessed through this link.
