Thank you for the parent survey return we recently received from you. The turnaround time was really quick, impressive and the level of analysis was really helpful to us as a school in moving forward. I like the presentation of the document in hard copy – very clear and explicit.

Ofsted and Surveying Parent Opinion

Inspectors have a statutory duty to have regard to the views of parents. The principal source of information that inspectors will use to access the views of parents is Parent View.

Where the response rate for Parent View is low, inspectors must take steps, during the inspection, to gather further evidence of the views of parents.

Inspectors will also have to take account of the results of any surveys carried out by or commissioned by the school. Inspectors must not come to any final conclusion on the basis of Parent View survey data alone.

The responses from Parent View will always represent a minority view and you will be in a much stronger position if you can demonstrate you have a much broader community view. Using our standard parent surveys will offer you the best way to do this cheaply and effectively.
