Consider how Ofsted can give parents more information on what their children are being taught

We will consider how Ofsted can give parents more information on what their children are being taught.

Our Verdict

Ofsted (Office for Standards in Education) regulates schools and other services that care for children. This usually involves inspecting institutions, writing reports and advising policymakers.

Since 2012, schools have been required by law to display their curriculums on their website to make their education programmes more transparent. Ofsted also conduct regular inspections and publish their results online.

Nick Gibb, Minister of State for School Standards, was asked after the general election about the government’s manifesto pledge. He said that “the Government is working with Ofsted to consider how parents can be given more information on what their children are taught”. However, there doesn’t appear to be any further progress on this yet.

Because of this, the policy will be marked ‘not started’. In order to progress the policy, we’re looking for an official publication from the government that considers how Ofsted can increase the amount of information parents receive on what children are being taught.

There's always room for debate

We’re serious about providing clear, up-to-date, non-partisan information. We focus on being consistent and fair in how we track policies, and always explain our reasoning. But there is always room for debate. So if you see it differently, we’d love you to tell us why or submit an edit.
