It's that time of year! At Edurio, we ensure that schools have current data for comparing against the national benchmark updates in the education sector of 2023, enhancing the overall picture. When we update our benchmarks, we learn about how the national picture has/hasn't changed since our last update.
Staff Experience and Wellbeing
This year's Staff Wellbeing Benchmark indicates a 3-5% decrease in positive responses to student behavior-related questions ('21/'22 vs. '22/'23).
Explore behavior in schools from various perspectives in our latest Improving School Trusts Report. It's an excellent resource for delving into stakeholder viewpoints on behavior.
Staff Equality, Diversity and Inclusion
In our Staff Equality, Diversity and Inclusion benchmark, positive response proportions have remained virtually unchanged.
Exploring our most up-to-date EDI report is a great way to explore some of our national insights on the topic of EDI in schools.
In our Parents Experience Benchmark, a notable shift is evident in the ease of contacting the school. Positive responses declined from 81% in the '21/'22 academic year to 75% in '22/'23 (ALL Parents BM). Suggesting parents are finding it harder to contact the schools this academic year.
We also noticed that a larger percentage of secondary school parents feel positively informed about their child's homework, with an increase from 41% positive responses in '21/'22 to 50% in '22/'23.

Pupil Learning Experience and Wellbeing
Our Pupil Learning and Wellbeing Benchmarks, among our largest, reveal noteworthy trends. During the '22/'23 academic year, we observed declines in positive responses for key aspects. These include teachers' feedback helpfulness (51% to 45%), clarity of teachers' explanations (60% to 53%), and ease of obtaining support from teachers (46% to 40%) when compared to the '21/'22 academic year. Suggesting pupils are less positive about their learning and classroom experience this year compared with last.
