What can I do to alert Ofsted of the need to inspect aspects of my child’s school?

The school will notify parents of the dates of inspections by letter. This provides you with details and options for giving your views about the school to Ofsted. The survey site ‘Parent View’ is the main way that Ofsted gathers parents’ views about a school: https://parentview.ofsted.gov.uk/login?destination=give-your-views Inspectors will use the views expressed on Parent View when inspecting your child’s school.

You may also be able to speak directly to inspectors at the start of the day of inspection, or you can ask your views to be communicated to them by the school appointed inspection administrators.

You can make a complaint about the school directly to Ofsted here: https://contact.ofsted.gov.uk/onlinecomplaints
