Parent View - Powered by Ofsted

Parent View gives you the chance to tell Ofsted what you think about our school, from the quality of teaching to dealing with bullying and poor behaviour. The survey can be completed at any time; you don’t have to wait until the school is being inspected.

We want to protect Ofsted parent view from abuse.

This is why the site requires your email address and password to complete the questionaire. We store email and IP addresses in order to investigate and ensure people cannot make multiple entries. Schools do not have access to any email addresses we store. Where we reasonable suspect misuse, we may share information with the compant that provide support for the Ofsted Parent View website to assist us with our investiagtion.

If you fill in the questionaire more than one, within a single academic year, for any school using the same email address, the previous entry will be over-written. Ofsted Parent View is designed so that there will only ever be on questionaire from each email address for a specific school in that school year.
