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

Ofsted confirm that this 12-question survey covers over 22,000 schools across England and is designed to help other parents as they make important choices about their child’s education and also provides Ofsted with information about schools that will help 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.”
