Ofsted has today (Monday 14 May) issued its annual point-in-time online surveys for residential special schools and further education colleges with residential provision.

The surveys are for children and learners, their parents and residential staff.

Ofsted inspectors want to hear what they have to say about the school or college. Their responses will help inform future inspections.

Ofsted is asking for responses by 22 June 2018.

Schools and colleges should provide a link to the surveys to everyone on Ofsted’s behalf. Alternatively, anyone who wants to give their views can contact us on 0300 123 1231 (select option 5 and then option 2) or email enquiries@ofsted.gov.uk.

If you’re a provider, have a look at our guidance about social care surveys, including a promotional poster.

Ofsted will run surveys for children’s homes, adoption and fostering services and residential family centres from 9 July until 17 August 2018 and for boarding schools from 1 October until 9 November 2018.
