Ofsted has today (Monday 1 October) issued its annual point-in-time online surveys for boarding schools.

The surveys are for children who board at the school, their parents and residential staff.

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

Ofsted is asking for responses by 9 November 2018.

Schools should provide a link to the surveys to everyone on Ofsted’s behalf. Alternatively, anyone wishing to offer their views can contact Ofsted 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.
