How this website uses cookies
Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer by web sites that you visit.

We use a single session cookie, which is essential to the Survey's operation. It ensures that your answers are remembered by the system as you navigate from page to page, and it prevents anyone else accessing your answers once you have left the website.

The information does not identify you as an individual. The cookie is redundant when your session ends.

Because the use of cookies is essential to the running of the Survey, and because we do not collect information about you, our use of cookies is exempt under the EU Privacy Directive. By continuing with the Survey you are giving your consent for the use of the session cookie.

If you still have concerns, or if you do not wish to continue using the Survey, please contact the person organising the Survey in your organisation.

The The Education Support Partnership Positive Workplace Survey is designed to highlight the organisational factors that affect the wellbeing of all staff. The survey is the starting point for the Education Support Partnership Positive Workplace Programme, which is broadly equivalent to the Health and Safety Executive's Stress Management Standards approach. This is your chance to have a say.

Please remember that the Education Support Partnership Positive Workplace Survey is a confidential and entirely anonymous. Responses cannot be attributed to specific individuals.

Completing the Survey

  • The Survey is arranged into sections. You are invited to agree or disagree with each statement - just click on your choice. Please try to give a rating for all the statements.
  • Navigate through the Survey using the Next Section and Previous Section buttons at the bottom of the screen. Do not use the 'Back' button on your browser.
  • For more information about what each section covers, click on the link in the Help box at the bottom left of the screen.
  • You can change the rating that you give for any statement, but try not to spend too much time worrying - the main thing is to be honest and fair in your judgements.
  • The Development Priorities section invites you to choose and rank up to three areas in which you would like to see your organisation develop. Look through all 14 statements carefully and then choose your top priority, second and third priority. Everyone's recommendations will be added together.
  • You are then asked to give us some basic information about yourself. The details from this section will not be included in the report where organisations or sub-groups have fewer than eight employees.
  • The confidentiality of your answers is guaranteed. The system does not allow individuals to be identified - it's about your workplace as a whole. We hope therefore that you will answer all the questions in the final section of the survey.

Click on 'Exit' when you have finished and follow the instructions that appear, otherwise your answers might not be collected.

The Positive Workplace Survey is an enhancement of the Well-Being Survey, with which it is still fundamentally compatible. The survey is also a key element of the new Positive Workplace Award, which recognises and celebrates schools who are striving to create thriving workplaces. Learn more at
