Ofsted is responsible for:

  • inspecting childcare, adoption and fostering agencies and initial teacher training.
  • publishing reports of their findings so they can be used to improve the overall quality of education and training.
  • regulating a range of early years and children’s social care services, making sure they’re suitable for children and potentially vulnerable young people.
  • reporting to policymakers on the effectiveness of these services.

The Ofsted ratings are:
