Our Bullying and School Safety Survey helps you understand how and why bullying happens in your school and student perceptions of school safety. With questions covering the various types of bullying that happen, where and when it occurs, and how students respond to and feel about bullying activity, you get insight into bullying activity in your school. Our anonymous survey provides individual schools with the tools to identify and take steps to reduce bullying behaviour and build a safe and inclusive school culture. Our data equips you to take action and make informed decisions so that you can effectively target interventions. OurSCHOOL helps you take the guesswork out of bullying prevention.

Each license allows you to survey up to two times during the 2019-20 school year with up to 2,500 participants per survey.

More than just an online survey

The OurSCHOOL Survey is a powerful evaluation tool that provides a total solution for measuring, assessing, and reporting insights on your school both during the year as well as year over year. It allows you to set quantifiable targets, track progress, and share your success with your school community.

The majority of students can complete this survey in 15 - 20 minutes.

Each Survey License comes with the support of our newly formed Engagement Team, which combines extensive classroom teaching and school leadership experience with deep knowledge of the research and analysis underpinning OurSCHOOL. With their combined knowledge and experience they can support schools to use perception data as evidence to impact school growth. The Engagement Team can help you prepare for the survey as well as debrief and analyze your survey results.

Before the survey

  • Help to determine how OurSCHOOL survey measures support specific school and division goals, allowing you to set baselines and targets while monitoring your impact on student outcomes,

  • Assist you in selecting measures to gather the most meaningful evidence to target interventions and focus your resources and efforts,

  • Create new custom questions that are actionable and capture evidence unique to your school community, and

  • Offer suggestions on existing custom questions to demonstrate how drill-downs can capture the best possible data.

After the survey

  • A one-on-one phone call or screen share to review your results and interpret what they mean, or

  • NEW! A Data Deep Dive interactive session, a workshop designed to help your school coordinators and teams:

    • understand and interpret data and reports,

    • illuminate areas to celebrate and investigate further, and

    • learn ways to share results with your school community.

Support can be as simple as a phone call or as in-depth as an interactive workshop. We are always available to help make sense of it all. Reach us by email at store@thelearningbar.com asking for the OurSCHOOL team.
