Ofsted’s survey programme serves a range of purposes. It allows us to focus on specific issues in greater detail than is possible during an institutional inspection. Alternatively, surveys can explore issues outside the current inspection framework, or may look at providers that are within our remit but whom we don’t currently inspect.
In surveys Ofsted can examine relationships between institutions, or between providers and other agencies. We can also evaluate the impact of recent policy developments.
We are interested in finding out how useful you have found these publications, and would welcome your views and ideas. Please complete our survey.
