Do Ofsted inspections cover the religious views of children and young people?

No. Ofsted has no right or remit to inspect your child’s religious views. Ofsted inspections are required to judge:

  • Personal development, behaviour and welfare
  • Outcomes for children and learners.

Although Ofsted have a remit to inspect the personal development, behaviour and welfare of pupils at the school, and the promotion of Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural development, they are also are obliged to consider your views as a parent.
