Ofsted’s role is to make sure that organisations providing education, training and care services in England do so to a high standard for children and students. Every week, they carry out hundreds of inspections and regulatory visits throughout England and publish the results online. They report directly to Parliament and we are independent and impartial.
They’re responsible for inspecting maintained schools and academies, some independent schools, and many other educational institutions. They publish reports of their findings, so they can be used to improve the overall quality of education and training.
Pupils’ behaviour is outstanding. So is the quality of care, guidance and support, helping pupils become responsible young citizens. Ofsted
