Ofsted is the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills. They inspect and regulate services that care for children and young people, and services providing education and skills for learners of all ages.
After the inspection, Ofsted publishes a public report that contains information on the school’s performance, its pupils’ work, observation reports on lessons and views from staff, parents and pupils.
The report makes judgements on:
achievements and standards
pupils' development and wellbeing
the quality of teaching and learning
how the curriculum is taught
the care, guidance and support the school provides
how well the school is led and managed.

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.
