Helping you to identify, measure and evaluate your actions on 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 Ofsted’s emphasis on teacher wellbeing and its impact on pupil wellbeing, we’ve introduced Staff Pulse to help you understand how your staff are feeling and develop action plans around any issues and pressures they’re facing within your school.
Developed by a psychologist, Staff Pulse gives you the ability to send short, anonymous surveys to capture 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 without fear of judgement or repercussions.
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
You have the data, now what? Acting on the feedback you receive 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.
How Staff Pulse will help your staff:
- Staff can quickly and easily give anonymous feedback on how they are feeling, without adding to their workload
- Staff gain a voice to tell leadership how they think their life at work and their work/life balance can be improved
- 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

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.
