Ofsted 'Big Listen'

Have your say about Ofsted in the Big Listen

Ofsted is the organisation whose job is to check that children get the best possible education and that are kept safe. They do this by visiting schools, colleges, local authorities, children’s homes and other organisations. 

The new head of Ofsted has launched the Big Listen to hear from everyone they work with, and, most importantly, to hear from children and young people.

Ofsted are keen to hear from children and young people who have care experience. They are tasked with providing an accurate picture of what it is like to be a child or learner in the education and care systems, nationally and locally. 

The Big Listen is structured to allow you to provide feedback on the areas of greatest interest and importance to you. Whatever your focus, the Big Listen is structured so you only need to comment on the things that matter to you.

The Big Listen is the opportunity for you to help Ofsted improve.  

You are important and your views matter.

Coram Voice are also holding some sessions as part of the ‘Big Listen’ for children and young people aged 11-17 in care to talk about their experiences and views of Ofsted. It is open to all children and young people with care experience, whether they have taken part in an Ofsted inspection or not.
