In early 2010 the Ofsted Parents’ Panel was consulted on how inspectors can better engage with parents during an inspection of their child’s school or childcare provider. Four hundred and seven members of the panel took part in this survey.
It is essential that Ofsted understands parental attitudes towards inspections, as well as finding out about the most practical ways to gather parents’ views during the inspection process. The findings of this survey are helping to inform Ofsted’s approach to inspections going forward.

Exchange of letters between Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector, Christine Gilbert and Secretary of State, The Rt Hon Michael Gove MP
Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector, Christine Gilbert, has advised the Secretary of State for Education of her intention to leave Ofsted at the end of June after nearly five years at the helm.
Christine Gilbert was initially appointed Her Majesty’s Chief Inspector of Schools in 2006, and became Her Majesty’s Inspector of Education, Children’s Services and Skills in 2007, steering the creation of an expanded Ofsted overseeing the merger of work from four inspectorates.
Baroness Sally Morgan, Ofsted Chair, said: 'Christine Gilbert will be a hard act to follow. She can be justifiably proud of her achievements with Ofsted which she leaves stronger and ready to face the challenges ahead.
'In the short time we have worked together, I have been hugely impressed by her breadth of knowledge, her commitment to children and learners and her unceasing professionalism. She has my very best wishes for the future.'
Miriam Rosen, a former executive director at Ofsted, will be the interim Chief Inspector until a permanent appointment is made. The position was advertised from 20 March 2011 and will follow the public appointments process.
