Ofsted’s Big Listen, which seeks the views of the education and social care sectors, along with parents, on the inspectorate’s work, has opened today (Friday 8 March).

The Big Listen, which Ofsted says ‘marks a new chapter in its relationship with the education and care sectors’, will run for 12 weeks and aims to put the interests of disadvantaged children at the ‘heart of reforms’.

According to the inspectorate, the major public consultation will be ‘wide-reaching’ and a comprehensive effort to hear from the full range of professionals and providers it works with.

The 'Big Listen' was first announced by Ofsted in January as a way to learn from headteacher Ruth Perry's death.
