BCE Listens Survey

The BCE Listens Survey is an opportunity that allows us to gather valued data which helps to inform our future work at St Mary’s and beyond to the system level. What our staff, parents and students think about our school matters. From Monday 6 June –Thursday 23 June we will engage with our community of staff, parents and students through the Brisbane Catholic Education (BCE) Listens Survey. Survey findings will be used to inform St Mary’s Primary future work and improvement journey. The survey also provides valuable information for Brisbane Catholic Education and assists with future planning for all BCE schools.

What you need to know

To ensure privacy and confidentiality are maintained, an independent survey provider — Australian Survey Research — will conduct the surveys on behalf of our school and Brisbane Catholic Education.

Please be assured parents who complete the survey will not be identified when the results are provided to us. We will only receive information based on the collective answers of all parents who participated in the survey.

Students in Years 4 through to 12 also participate in the survey and will complete it at school.

It is important to note that school leaders and teachers will be able to access individual student survey results. Students' survey results will be linked to their learning data to improve our understanding of their educational needs.

Please be assured that all survey responses are treated confidentially, and all data will be stored securely in accordance with the Information Privacy Act 2009 (Qld). No identifying information will be published or released.

Parents of students in Years 4-6 who wish to have their child withdrawn from this opportunity to complete the survey, please complete the short form (available in the Survey article in our latest newsletter) before Monday 23 May.

If you have any questions, please contact Renay Condon via the office on 5541 2005.

As partners in your child’s education, what you think of our school matters. Thank you for supporting our school community and participating in the 2022 BCE Listens Survey.
