Ofsted's Sean Harford explains what's changing and why they want to hear from parents

In a series of four short videos, Sean Harford, Ofsted's Director of Education, answers questions parents may have about why they are changing the way they inspect schools from September, and how parents can have a say in shaping how Ofsted works.

Why is Ofsted proposing a new framework?


Why does Ofsted want to hear from parents? How can parents respond to the consultation? And what will you do with their responses?


Will this change Ofsted reports and how parents are involved in inspections? And how will Parent View change?


Will this change what children are being taught?


Have your say

There are two ways that parents can get involved and feedback to Ofsted on their proposed new framework. One is to respond directly to the consultation. The other is to take our quick survey of parents which we will use to respond to Ofsted as an organisation. Both forms of response will ensure that parent voice is heard and taken into account by the inspectorate.
