Ofsted schools survey reports

Ofsted survey and thematic reports for schools.

Ofsted carries out an annual programme of subject and thematic surveys alongside its main inspection programme of providers.

The survey programme serves a range of purposes. Depending on the subject chosen, a survey provides an opportunity to focus on specific issues in greater detail than is possible during an institutional inspection. Alternatively, it may explore an aspect that falls outside the current inspection framework, or may sample provision in areas of our remit not currently subject to an inspection programme.

In surveys Ofsted can examine relationships between institutions and between providers and other agencies. Ofsted can evaluate the impact on providers and learners 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.
