Parent View is an online facility launched by Ofsted in October 2011 that allows parents and carers to give their views of our school at any time of the school year. The questionnaire is also the main mechanism for parents to give their views to inspectors about their child’s school at the time of a school inspection.
How to register on Parent View
To register on the Parent View site, parents must initially enter an email address, and confirm that they are a parent or carer. They will also be asked to clarify how many schools their children attend (allowing for different children at different schools). An email is then sent to the specified email address to verify the account. On verification, users then select a secure password for their account.
The Ofsted website has a brief introductory video demonstrating Parent View to show users how to register, complete the questionnaire and set up alerts about schools.
Parent View questions
Once your login has been activated, you can follow the instructions on the screen and indicate whether you strongly agree, agree, disagree, strongly disagree or don’t know in response to 11 short statements. Question 12 asks whether you would recommend the school to other parents.
