21st March 2024Ofsted – Launch The Big Listen

Ofsted has today extended its Big Listen consultation to hear directly from children, seeking their views on how Ofsted can improve.

The Big Listen seeks views right across their work, from schools and children’s social care to teacher training and early years.

They are wanting to explore 4 areas:

  • reporting – how they report on education and regulatory inspections
  • inspection practice – the shape of their education and regulatory inspections,  ways of working and the craft of inspecting
  • culture and purpose – the conduct of their inspections and the way they work
  • impact – the consequences of inspections for children, professionals, institutions and parents’ choices

The Big Listen is structured to allow you to provide feedback on the areas of greatest interest and importance to you. You may only want to give your views on schools. Or you might want to share views on how they report across further education and teacher training.

The survey can be accessed on the link below:
