Ofsted’s new inspections report website is going live on Tuesday 2 October, after which the existing reports site will no longer be available.
The new site has been in BETA (testing) for a number of months alongside the old site.
The new inspection reports site uses up-to-date technology and is compatible with non-desktop devices. The content is more streamlined and uses less jargon. The site is accessible to a range of people with varying digital needs.
Users can search by category and then filter results. The upgraded search functionality makes it easier for our users to find and use the information they need about providers and Ofsted’s inspection reports, ratings and publications.
Subscribe to email alerts on the new website
As part of this upgrade, email alerts from the old site about inspection reports will stop. If you want to continue to receive email alerts when new inspection reports are published, you will need to re-subscribe on the new site.
On the new site, you can subscribe to receive email alerts when we publish a new inspection report about a single provider or when we publish new inspection reports for any provider under a search result, such as any provider within in a local authority or region.
- go to https://reports.ofsted.gov.uk
- use the search to find the provider(s) and/or search results you would like to receive email alerts for
- on provider and search result pages, you will see ‘Get email alerts’: click this link to subscribe.
There are redirects in place for the new site. If you have pages from the old site bookmarked, these will redirect to the relevant page.
However, bookmarks that link directly to a PDF are not redirected. To fix these links, go to https://reports.ofsted.gov.uk and search for the provider you want to bookmark. You will find the relevant report on the provider’s page.
We recommend always bookmarking a provider’s page instead of their PDF inspection report, so that you always have the latest version of the report and can see the contextual information on the page.
Feedback and future improvements
We have developed the new website around users’ needs and we will continue to do this in the future. We are committed to meeting users’ requirements and making a site that works for you.
