Parent Survey 2016 Highlights Positives of Riverside ESC

The 2016 School Survey, conducted under the auspices of the federal Department of Education, has delivered very positive feedback about the operation and effectiveness of Riverside Education Support Centre’s program.

Anonymous surveys were completed by 16 Parents, for which RESC expresses sincere appreciation.

A summary of question responses appears in the table below:

  Response 2015   2016
   
  Strongly Disagree 0 0%   0 0%
  Disagree 3 1%   0 0%
  Neither Agree nor Disagree 24 7%   0 0%
  Agree 117 35%   29 13%
  Strongly Agree 192 57%   193 87%
  TOTAL 336 100%   222 100%
             
  Agree or Strongly Agree as percentage of all responses 309 92%   222 100%

The statements put forward for responses, and the cumulative data, are laid out in this pdf file: RESC_SCHOOL_SURVEY_2016.pdf

This outstanding result is the outcome of a collective and cooperative approach that values all forms of input throughout the year. The survey at the end of the year acts as a barometer for future planning and we are delighted to learn our programs and methodology are on track and well received.

Indeed, our school is committed to the ongoing improvement of every component that impacts on our ability to educate and nurture the students in our care, and even though the responses are very favourable, we remain diligent about ways to improve Riverside ESC. The anonymous survey is just one way parents can provide feedback and we welcome parent and carer comments at any time.

Principal Jim Douglas operates with an 'open door' policy to encourage communication.It is good to make an appointment to see him, but spontaneous visits also work well provided you have a little patience.
