Ofsted is the Office for Standards in Education, Children's Services and Skills. We inspect and regulate services that care for children and young people, and services providing education and skills for learners of all ages.
Every week, we carry out hundreds of inspections and regulatory visits throughout England and publish the results online. We also report on standards across the country and are accountable directly to Parliament. Ofsted's inspections are independent and impartial.
Our goal is to achieve excellence in education and skills for learners of all ages, and in the care of children and young people.
We aim to be "a force for improvement through intelligent, responsible and focused inspection and regulation" (Ofsted 2017 to 2022 strategy).
