Ofsted Parent View is an online survey that allows parents to give their views about their child’s school. Parents can complete the survey at any time. By ‘parents’, we mean any person with parental responsibility for a child at the school.
Ofsted Parent View is also the main mechanism for parents to give their views to inspectors at the time of a school inspection.
