During spring 2007 Ofsted undertook a consultation exercise about its plans to respond to parental complaints, under new powers contained in the Education and Inspections Act 2006. Ofsted conducted an online survey, face-to-face meetings with national organisations and commissioned qualitative research to gather the views of parents whose circumstances made them harder to reach than others, through focus groups and individual interviews. The results of the consultation are summarised in this report.

A survey was conducted between September 2006 and February 2007 to evaluate how schools involved parents and carers in the education of children and young people and how effective this involvement was. All the schools in the survey valued parents' and carers' involvement, but the best schools made them active partners. The best schools demonstrated versatility, flexibility and determination in their efforts to engage with parents and carers.
