What/Who is Ofsted?

Ofsted is the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills. We inspect services providing education and skills for learners of all ages. We also inspect and regulate services that care for children and young people.

Ofsted’s Responsibilities


  • maintained schools and academies, some independent schools, and many other educational institutions and programmes outside of higher education
  • childcare, adoption and fostering agencies and initial teacher training


  • a range of early years and children’s social care services, making sure they’re suitable for children and potentially vulnerable young people


  • publishing reports of our findings so they can be used to improve the overall quality of education and training
  • informing policymakers about the effectiveness of these services

Parent View

Please share your views through Parent View.  Parents and carers can give their views of our school at any time of the school year and at the time of a school inspection using an online questionnaire called Parent View.

When our school is notified of its next Ofsted inspection, parents will be invited to give their views about the school to inspectors using the Parent View online facility as this has replaced Ofsted’s paper questionnaire.  Please make sure we have your most up-to-date contact details.

To use Parent View, please register with Ofsted using an email address and a password.  Once your login has been activated, it only takes a few minutes to complete answers to 12 short questions about aspects such as bullying, the quality of teaching, level of homework, etc.

Your views are important in helping inspectors make a decision about our school, and to help us know what is going well and what could be improved.
