Ask The Right Kinds of Questions and Gain New Insights
Before implementing any new initiatives designed to support staff and teacher wellbeing, it’s important that leaders gather the relevant data to understand how their people are doing at work, uncover any underlying issues, and determine what initiatives may be most helpful for their school.
The simplest way to understand what teachers and school staff need to support their health and wellbeing is to ask them.
A confidential staff survey helps measure and monitor progress and enables a school to focus on the tangible and practical actions they can take to support a whole school approach to mental health and wellbeing.
Well-constructed staff wellbeing surveys help school leaders collect valuable feedback from their staff. With useful information and data, schools are better able to directly address the needs most reported in their school’s survey through targeted action plans.
Our survey asks the right kinds of questions to give you the best insight into your school’s needs. Grouped into four main sections, our editable 80+ question anonymous staff wellbeing survey provides insights into your staff’s views, opinions, and wellbeing needs.
Four Survey Sections
Section 1: General Staff Wellbeing
Ask staff about how they have been feeling recently regarding their health, mental health and resilience. Quantify how many of your leaders and staff are impacted at work and whether any current staff wellbeing approaches are truly effective (or not!).
Section 2: Burnout Risk
Determine how many of your staff self-identify with feeling burned out or experiencing multiple symptoms of burn out. Bring awareness to the acute needs of staff so you can triage support and guide future decision making or actions aimed at reducing burnout rates for your people.
Section 3: Workplace Wellbeing, School Culture, and Staff Attitudes
Ask staff key questions about workplace satisfaction, staff morale and reflections on school culture overall. Quickly identify which workplace stressors impact people in your school the most, and which initiatives they feel would be the most supportive of their wellbeing moving forward.
Section 4: School and Leadership Processes for Staff Wellbeing
Explore the impact and efficacy of the processes currently in place, and approaches being used to support staff wellbeing and school culture improvement. Review your staff’s feelings of involvement in wellbeing initiatives, how supported they feel by their leaders, their reflections of and the leadership and school-led engagement strategies on offer.

“Our return survey results evidenced growth way beyond my expectations over a 12-month period.”
Adrienne’s survey and tools, alongside follow-up reporting have opened a whole new perspective, for both my staff and I, on staff wellbeing as being the responsibility of the collective.
Adrienne’s advice has facilitated the development of a ‘Wellbeing Action Plan’, that is tailored to our staff in our school context. Her independent and empathetic ear, partnered with her research, expertise and on-the-ground awareness, has been embraced by the entire staff. Our return survey results evidenced growth way beyond my expectations over a 12-month period.
Without reservation, I would highly recommend Adrienne’s Consultancy and guidance. It takes the pressure off the principal to be the one and only. ‘Us and Them’ is now a thing of the past.

“We have made considerable progress in the way we support staff wellbeing.”
“Adrienne’s data-driven approach is underpinned by a school scan, which provided us with an evidence-informed base, upon which we could make informed decisions about our specific situation, identifying areas of strength and areas requiring attention.
The staff survey formed an important part of this evidence base. The survey is very in-depth and, at times, direct. The responses provided by staff gave clarity around how they felt about specific aspects of their wellbeing.
With this information and Adrienne’s guidance, we developed a wellbeing plan aligned to the findings of the school scan and survey.
We recently re-surveyed our staff after 12 months of working on our identified focus areas. Our data is positive, indicating improvement in staff perception of how the school supports wellbeing. This is consistent with the executive team’s evaluation.”

“With her guidance and support, we feel confident sharing the data with staff and working with our staff to create a common language and approach to managing our key stresses.”
We began working with Adrienne Hornby earlier this year when our staff identified the need for an anonymous survey about staff wellbeing. The Staff Wellbeing Survey gave us a great opportunity to really identify the key factors impacting staff.
The very detailed and descriptive report we received from Adrienne Hornby Consulting was clear and easy to read. We were able to share the results with staff and refer to the elements regularly, which showed staff that we were serious about improving staff wellbeing. With her guidance and support, we feel confident sharing the data with staff and working with our staff to create a common language and approach to managing our key stresses. Adrienne has a warm and inviting approach. She listens intently and actively to understand the needs of the school. I would highly recommend Adrienne Hornby Consulting to help with your School Staff Wellbeing needs.

“We’ve had some other survey instruments that focus on lots of different areas rather than just staff health and wellbeing. This one gives us the best information”
“The survey’s not just a survey, it’s the process around it. We’ve had some other survey instruments that focus on lots of different areas rather than just staff health and wellbeing. This one gives us the best information, it funnels everything in into the one area.
The benefit of using this survey and your process, is that staff feel like they’ve been heard and they’ve had a voice and that leadership is about us helping drive direction to support them. That’s been very valuable for us as a whole school team. We are more comfortable now holding each other to account as well and having more challenging conversations.
Your support analysing the survey means that we are outsourcing where we could sit there and go through it, but may not have the time. Having someone with your expertise support us is helpful.
We are very, very happy with it and we couldn’t have asked for a better way to start our health and wellbeing journey. We’ll have to revisit this time and time again.”
Principal - Beverley District High School, WA
“The entire staff were engaged in the process and the results and insights were both fascinating and extremely useful to understand and implement.”
“I have had an excellent experience working with Adrienne. I found the Staff Wellbeing Survey to be a very detailed and broad-based tool providing staff input on their health and wellness needs. The entire staff were engaged in the process and the results and insights were both fascinating and extremely useful to understand and implement.
The data analysis was extremely insightful, responsive, professional and accommodating. Not only did it give results but provided realistic recommendations for the development of a solid Wellbeing Action Plan which takes into consideration the unique needs of the staff.”
Deputy Principal, ACT
“Really, it was a bargain, considering how useful we found it!”
“The survey went well! Everyone was pleased to see that our wellbeing was generally better than we thought – with a few important exceptions that we identified were concerning and needing further support.
The burnout part of the data was overall worse than we’d hoped. So, we used the data from the survey to inform the types of wellbeing activities and supports that staff would find beneficial.
Those of us that led this project were very glad to have your survey as it was exactly what we were after in getting some perspective of how our staff are doing in a non-threatening way. Really, it was a bargain, considering how useful we found it!”
School Leader, VIC
“It was so useful to compare our data with other schools to see where we are on our journey.”
Thank you for your friendly and approachable facilitation of our whole school survey. We felt it was appropriate and encouraged feedback from each staff member. It was so useful to compare our data with other schools to see where we are on our journey. I liked the guidance received to review our data and make connections.
