School Climate Survey Parent Information

 Dear Parent,                                                            

Every two years the Ministry of Education requires that we conduct a School Climate Survey where we ask students, staff, and families to give input on the environment in our school. In Catholic schools, our Catholic teaching on the dignity of the human person is the starting point for all issues of diversityCatholic schools strive to create an environment where all members of the school community feel safe, welcomed, included and valued.

 We need your voice.

 As parents and guardians, we value your voice and ask for your input as we continue to build positive school climates. We encourage you to take 10 minutes to complete our survey and ask that each family complete only one survey for each of the schools the children in your family attend. Each survey is linked to the school your child attends.

 Please click this link for the parent survey:  or click on the survey link on the St Philip website.

 All students in Grades 4-12 will complete a similar survey at school. The student survey measures safety, bullying, equity, inclusivity and student well-being.  Our school staff will also complete a survey.

 The surveys will help in-school teams determine school needs, make decisions on improving the climate of our school, as well as help to determine whether programs are effective at improving the school climate. 

 If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact the school. We look forward to hearing your feedback regarding our school’s climate.

 This survey will also be available in the following languages:  Arabic, French, Simple Mandarin and Spanish.  Contact your principal to receive a paper copy in the language of your preference.


This survey will be available for completion until May 5, 2017.
