About Ofsted inspection reports
Ofsted inspect providers across education, children’s services and further education and skills and tell you what Ofsted find in our inspection reports.
The type of inspection will determine such things as:
the number of inspectors
the length of the inspection
the amount of notice a provider gets
what happens during the inspection
the content of the inspection report.
A typical inspection has one or more inspectors visiting a provider to find out about them.
The inspection will follow a framework and report on particular aspects of the provision.
After the inspection Ofsted tell you what it finds out in its inspection reports.
Ofsted publish these reports on its website, and in some cases the provider has to provide the report on request.
The content of a report will depend on the type of inspection.
An inspection report will describe the provider, then go on to tell you about our inspection findings and judgements with the grades given by the inspector.
