Focuses on school staff as part of the authors’ work involving surveys of pupils, parents and staff in a range of school planning and improvement strategies. Believes there is a danger that assumptions will be made about what staff think of the school. It is important to have mechanisms to gather genuine views rather than making such assumptions. An honest view of the staff’s perceptions of a school will provide significant information for school improvement. The authors worked with the schools and used a questionnaire approach. Questions were designed to be answered quite quickly but to cover a range of areas in‐depth. The 30 questions were randomized in the questionnaire but regrouped into categories for analysis. Discusses process issues such as the implementation of the survey and the follow‐up required in the school in terms of school planning and improvement.
