Ofsted is the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills.
Ofsted sets out to achieve four main priorities:
- Better outcomes – Driving improvement for children and learners of all ages
- Better inspection and regulation – Improving the way we work in order to provide sharper accountability that focuses on underperformance and drives fairness for those using services
- Better public involvement – Ensuring that people’s views and experiences inform how and when we need to inspect and regulate; and empowering people with the information they need to make choices and hold services to account
- Better ways of working – Using our resources responsibly in effective, efficient and sustainable ways that focus on the front line
