Best Feedback From Satisfaction Surveys Ever!

Over the last six years, every October, we have sent out Satisfaction Surveys to all Barnet state schools and PVIs and Childminders, asking three questions about BELS services:

Q1: How Satisfied are you with this service?

  • Extremely Satisfied

  • Satisfied

  • Not Satisfied

  • Not at all Satisfied

Q2: How likely (0-10) is it that you would recommend this Service to another school or setting or colleague?


Any response that gives 0-6 are termed ‘Detractors’

Any response that gives 7-8 are termed ‘Passive’

Any response that gives 9-10 are termed ‘Promoters’

The scores from all the respondents gives us a Net Promotor Score (NPS). These scores range from -100 to +100. To calculate the Net Promoter Score we subtract the percentage of Detractors from the percentage of Promoters. e.g. if 50% of respondents were Promoters and 10% were Detractors, the Net Promoter is a score of 40.

Q3: Why did you give this score?

Analysis of the Satisfaction Surveys

When the surveys closed, we analysed the responses in order to give us:

  1. a percentage for each service who were either Extremely Satisfied or Satisfied; We received an overall satisfaction level of 96.16%, the highest level of satisfaction since we started doing these surveys. It is pleasing to note the five-year improving trend regarding the schools’ satisfaction with our services.

  2. a Net Promoter Score (NPS) The Overall NPS this year was +437 (+199 in 2021); the best Net Promotor Scores in the 6 years we have been conducting these surveys.
