The first annual report for the new Ofsted finds a broadly positive picture across education, child care and adult skills, but warns that not enough is being done to narrow the gap and improve the care and education of disadvantaged children and young people.
This is new Ofsted’s first Disability Equality Scheme and is, together with our Race Equality and Gender Equality Schemes, an important step to delivering our goals. We hope you will take the time to read it and give us your views. Feedback is important, as we are committed to continual improvement.
We are particularly interested in the views and comments of disabled people and have worked with disabled people and stakeholder groups in developing our scheme. Please take a moment to complete the online survey and give us your feedback.
The consultation will close at 10am on 14 November.
Ofsted demonstrated its on-going commitment to valuing difference and diversity with the launch of its first Race Equality and Gender Equality Schemes and supporting action plans.
Both schemes illustrate how Ofsted aims to further promote equality in all its functions and activities, including employment practices, public service delivery, policy development and the procurement of services. Read more

We inspect and regulate to achieve excellence in the care of children and young people, and in education and skills for learners of all ages.
The new Ofsted brings together the wide experience of four inspectorates to make a greater difference for every child, and for all young people and adult learners, in England. Their educational, economic and social well-being will promote our success as a country.
