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.

Concerns and complaints about social care providers

When considering complaints Ofsted does not act as a complaint adjudicator. We do not decide if complaints are upheld, partially upheld or are unsubstantiated. Instead we investigate concerns to make sure that the social care provider continues to meet the National Minimum Standards and associated regulations and remains suitable for registration.

This was updated in November 2008.
