Annual data from the School Satisfaction Survey.

Child and Student Wellbeing is a key priority for our Department. We aim to ensure that learners are safe, feel supported and are able to flourish so they can engage in learning. Find out more about our approach to wellbeing.

School Satisfaction information is an important element of school improvement planning. School satisfaction data was collected from parents and staff in all Tasmanian government schools. 2019 was the final year of Student Satisfaction recording due to the introduction of the Student Wellbeing measurement.

The table below shows most recent annual data on the satisfaction levels of parents and staff. Satisfaction levels are determined based on respondents who agreed or strongly agreed, as a proportion of all those who expressed agreement or disagreement, averaged across the nationally agreed question set.

National questions include 12-16 items, inclusive of multiple aspects of school satisfaction. This measure replaces previous measures based on a single question.

The annual Student Wellbeing & Engagement Survey provides critical measures of student wellbeing through the voice of our learners. The Survey data informs our school and system planning, our policies and services, and efforts to support the wellbeing of children and young people across Government.
