How Ofsted will encourage and promote the involvement of the people who use the services they inspect.
Ofsted works to raise standards and improve lives. It does this through rigorous and independent inspection of services for children, young people and learners, supporting improvement, securing value for money, and promoting excellence. It can only achieve these goals by involving and working with a wide range of people who use the services they inspect.
This strategy sets out how Ofsted will work to improve the way it consults and involves children and young people, parents’ and carers, learners and employers across England, and support the delivery of Ofsted’s vision and purpose. Ofsted does this as a driver for improvement in the services they inspect and in how Ofsted works as an organisation.
