Staff Pulse - staff wellbeing survey

Helping you to understand how you can retain your talented teachers.

Give your school staff a voice through anonymous surveys. Staff Pulse is a staff survey tool to help you make informed decisions for school improvement.

Gather feedback, build an action plan and measure results to improve staff wellbeing, school performance and retention.  

With questions developed by a psychologist, the short surveys capture employee feedback across 21 different categories, including: workload, support, communication and enjoyment. In scoring and commenting on given statements, staff can be totally honest about how they feel and how you can support their wellbeing, without fear of judgement or repercussions.

Prioritise staff wellbeing

If you’ve happy teachers who are delivering great lessons to the best of their ability, you’re more likely to have happy pupils with better outcomes.

With increased emphasis on teacher wellbeing and its impact on pupil wellbeing, Staff Pulse helps you understand how your staff are feeling and develop action plans around any issues and pressures they’re facing within your school.

Once an action plan has been put into place, staff can see that they’re been listened to and that they, and their opinions, matter.

Respond to comments

Conversations gives you the ability to respond to comments, opening up lines of communication with your staff and allowing an anonymous conversation to begin.

As staff can be completely honest in scoring and commenting, you can offer help and advice for staff who've indicated they're struggling or stressed, showing your staff you're listening and trying to make improvements.

Build a great school environment

Staff want to feel valued and appreciated. Acting on the feedback you receive from Staff Pulse is an essential part of the engagement process. The results from the surveys will help you to identify actionable insights in both strength and problem areas from which you can create an action plan for improvement.

You can share the steps you’re taking with your staff to help them to understand why you’ve taken a particular action and encourage their participation in future surveys.

You can then assess the impact of your action and track its effectiveness by asking your staff for feedback and then monitoring and tracking changes.

Access real-time data

Once you’ve sent your first survey, it’s easy to view the results on your school’s dashboard in Tes Portal. Here you’ll have access to:

  • How many staff completed the survey
  • If staff are generally satisfied at your school
  • Scores across each of the categories so you know which areas you need to prioritise in your action plan
  • Specific comments on survey questions to help form the basis of your action plan
  • Benchmark scores across each of the categories against a national average

The regular cyclic nature of the surveys provides opportunity for feedback and action, by identifying areas for attention as well as highlighting strengths to be celebrated. I am very impressed with this product.
