Parents Panel


Thank you for your interest in joining our Parents Panel. We have set this up as we know parents in England have a valuable contribution to make to the work of Ofsted and we’d like to ensure that you have a say on important matters that affect your child(ren)’s education – for example, the frequency of inspection, format and content of inspection reports, behaviour in schools, etc.

To ensure we are as inclusive as possible, we will need to ask you some questions about you and your child(ren).

The panel is not designed to receive complaints or to deal with individual issues. If you wish to make a complaint or have a serious concern about your child(ren)’s school, nursery or childminder you can find more information about how to do so on our complaints page.

Please read our Terms and Conditions on the next page before registering, or contact us if you’d like any further information by emailing
