Use our sample questionnaire to assess staff confidence in mastery and greater depth teaching.

KeyDoc: sample staff questionnaire

A school leader asked us whether there are any examples of questionnaires which assess staff members’ confidence and levels of knowledge in mastery and greater depth teaching and learning.

Despite a careful search, we did not find any examples of questionnaires for this specific purpose. We therefore worked with Nina Siddall-Ward, one of our associate education experts, to create a KeyDoc with a sample questionnaire school leaders in primary schools could use to assess staff knowledge of mastery and greater depth teaching.

The aspects and questions listed are intended as examples, and you may wish to look at other areas or include other questions to suit your school’s particular context.
