Ofsted and Parent View

Parent View

In October 2011, Ofsted launched Parent View, a new online questionnaire that allows parents and carers to give their views on their child’s school at any time of the year.

Covering over 22,000 schools across England, the 12-question survey helps parents as they make important choices about their child’s education and provides Ofsted with information about schools that helps inform priorities for inspection.

Parent View has been produced with the assistance of a panel of parents who contributed to shaping the questions and the way the site functions. The questionnaire covers a range of topics, including quality of teaching, bullying, behaviour and levels of homework, allowing parents to give a view about their child’s school on each issue, with a final question as to whether or not they would recommend the school to other parents. The questionnaire does not allow free text comments but invites responses to a series of closed questions.
