Benefits of the Small School Assessment

  • The Small School Assessment provides the same data available in a School Values Assessment without the full written analysis.
  • It can help to generate deep meaningful discussions about what is working and not working in the culture of the school you are assessing.
  • The assessment uses a standard template of values that does not require customisation. 
  • The Small School Assessment comes with a fixed demographic question allowing you to segment the results by Teaching Staff, Non-Teaching Staff, Governors and Parents/Carers.


Key Features

  • Affordable – The Small School Assessment provides you with all the data you need for analysing the culture of a small school, without the full cost of a larger group SVA.
  • Fast Turnaround – Typically goes from survey initiation to reporting in two to three weeks.
  • Options
    • Multiple Languages - The online survey and plots are available in multiple languages. Additional languages can easily be added.
    • Individual Values Assessments - Individual Values Assessments (IVA) plots and reports can be obtained for each team member at an additional cost.
    • Espoused Values Analysis - You can also choose to carry out an Espoused Values Analysis (EVA) for your school at additional cost. This analysis measures the degree to which the espoused values are being lived in your organisation.


Description of the Small School Assessment

The Small School Assessment has been designed as a price-friendly alternative for small school to a School Values Assessment. The Small School Assessment plots contain a one page summary of findings, along with the key diagrams and data tables that you would normally receive in a School Values Assessment.
