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