Ofsted is the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills.
Ofsted’s role is to make sure that organisations providing education, training and care services in England do so to a high standard for children and students.
Every week, they carry out hundreds of inspections and regulatory visits throughout England and publish the results online. They report directly to Parliament and we are independent and impartial.
The inspection provides independent, external evaluation and identifies what needs to improve in order for the provision to be good or better. It is based on gathering a range of evidence that is evaluated against an inspection framework and takes full account of our policies and relevant legislation in areas such as safeguarding, equality and diversity.
The inspection provides important information to parents, carers, learners and employers about the quality of education, training and care. These groups should be able to make informed choices based on the information published in inspection reports.
Ofsted Parent View Website
Parent View gives you the chance to tell Ofsted what you think about your child’s school, from the quality of teaching to dealing with bullying and poor behaviour. The survey can be completed at any time; you don’t have to wait until the school is being inspected.
