What is Parent View?
Parent View is an online facility that allows parents and carers to give their views about their child's 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.
The questionnaire can be accessed directly at https://parentview.ofsted.gov.uk or from the home page of Ofsted's website www.ofsted.gov.uk.
How do I 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.
