BCE Listens Survey

Throughout the year, we have been sharing information on the collaborative parent engagement work we are progressing through the Community Consultative Committee (renamed later this year). We have also been extremely appreciative of your engagement with the Catholic Identity Survey, with the pleasing news from the University of Leuven that our parent response rate was strong (thank you again for this!).

After the winter holidays, our school is taking part in the Brisbane Catholic Education (BCE) Listens Survey. Many families have participated in this bi-annual survey before, which provides us with valuable feedback on what our community of staff, parents and senior students think about learning and working at our school. These survey findings will be used to inform our school’s future work and improvement journey across a broad range of areas. We have been asked to communicate the below to you from Brisbane Catholic Education.

What you need to know

The 2021 survey will be held between Monday 12 July to Tuesday 27 July. To ensure privacy and confidentiality are maintained, an independent survey provider — Australian Survey Research — will conduct the survey on behalf of our school and Brisbane Catholic Education.

Parents and students who complete the survey will not be identified when the results are later provided to the school. The school will only receive information based on the collective answers of those who participated in the survey. Where fewer than five people respond to a question, the results will be suppressed.

The parent survey takes 10 minutes or less to complete. The student survey takes between 5 to 20 minutes to complete, depending on age and/or reading ability of the student, and will be administered by the school during normal school hours.

Participating in the survey is entirely voluntary. Your child will not take part if either you or your child do not wish to. If, during the survey, your child is uncomfortable, he/she can choose to stop the survey at any time.

If you do not wish your child to complete the survey please fill in this short form before midnight Thursday 24 June 2021. There is nothing you need to do if you are happy for your child to participate in the survey.

If you have any questions, please contact the school via phone or pbeaudesert@bne.catholic.edu.au. Further information can also be found in the Frequently Asked Questions document on the Parent Portal.

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