Publisher: Ofsted


If you are concerned about your child's school, you should start by talking directly to the teachers or headteacher or, if necessary, the governing body or the local authority.

If you are not satisfied with the responses you have received Ofsted may be able to help.

There are a number of things we can do, and in exceptional cases we can arrange an immediate inspection of the school.

This leaflet explains when and how we can help.
