In October 2011 Ofsted launched Parent View, which is a facility for parents to give their views about their child’s school. More than 14,100 parents have completed a Parent View survey since its launch.
Parent View allows parents and carers to give their views about their child’s school at any time of the year. It features 12 questions that cover a range of issues important to parents, such as how well the school deals with bullying, the quality of teaching, whether the level of homework given is appropriate and a final question of whether or not a parent would recommend the school. Once a small number of surveys are completed, the results for the school are visible in Parent View although individual responses are not.
Ofsted analyses the responses given by parents on a monthly basis. Many parents who are happy with their child’s school use Parent View to share their satisfaction or to show their support for the school. If you are a parent or carer you simply need your email address and a password to register on the Parent View website by clicking the logo below:
Once your login has been activated it only takes a few minutes to rate your child’s school against the 12 questions.
