Parent engagement survey

The 2020 parent engagement survey is now open. The survey is for all parents of students enrolled in a South Australian public school.

The survey is an opportunity for parents to provide feedback on their school. 

Your feedback will help us understand: 

  • what we are doing well
  • where we can improve
  • what is really important to you as a parent. 

How to complete the survey

All parents and carers who have their contact details recorded with their school will receive a unique link to the survey. 

The survey will be open from Monday 7 September to Friday 25 September 2020. 

The survey should take no longer than 10 minutes to complete. 

You may have received the survey link from the department or from your school, or both. You only need to complete the survey once if you’d like to provide feedback.

If you have not received a link, please email education.parentsurvey [at] sa.gov.au with the name of the school your child attends, and we’ll send you the correct link.

Survey responses

The survey results will be reported back to schools and used by the department to better understand what parents think we’re doing well, where we can improve, and what’s really important to you as a parent.

All responses are confidential. Only collated feedback will be provided to your child’s school. There will be no identifying information sent back to schools to link them to individual parents. There is the option to provide written comments in the survey, so please do not write your name unless you want to be directly identified by the school.

If you have more than one child and have different experiences or views for different children, please try to give the answer that best represents your view.

Schools may choose to present some or all of the survey results in their annual report.

More information

This survey aims to gather information from parents and schools across South Australia to give a broad picture of how parents engage with schools.

While we value your feedback, the survey is voluntary. If you don’t want to receive any more contact about this year’s survey, please use the unsubscribe link in your email, or email education.parentsurvey [at] sa.gov.au.

Your school may still contact you to undertake other surveys from time to time about matters specific to your school.

If you have feedback about your school or an issue that you would like to discuss about your child, please contact your school directly. 

If you would like to provide feedback about the parent survey please email education.parentsurvey [at] sa.gov.au
