Ofsted Inspection, October 2021
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.
Every week, they carry out hundreds of inspections and regulatory visits throughout England and publish the results online. They help providers that are not yet of good standard to improve, monitor their progress and share with them the best practice they find.
Their goal is to achieve excellence in education and skills for learners of all ages, and in the care of children and young people.
They report directly to Parliament and we are independent and impartial.
Ofsted encourage parents to give their views on the children’s school via Parent View
