The Student Attitudes to School Survey occurs each

The Student Attitudes to School Survey occurs each year for all students in Victorian Government schools. The survey is conducted in Term 2 with students from Years 4 to 12.
The survey captures students’ attitudes and experiences at school and is aligned with the Department’s Framework for Improving Student Outcomes (FISO). The survey measures are based on the best available evidence about what influences student outcomes.

The 2018 survey will be conducted online for all students in Years 4 to 12 and is administered from a secure online portal. It is anonymous.

Our school uses this data to inform how our students are engaging at school and put measures in place to make school a better experience for them. For example, this year’s School Captains will be working with the Principal to come up with responses to areas identified through this and last years’ results. More information to follow.
