Mr Nick Gibb – 2014 Parliamentary Question to the Department for Education

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Mr Nick Gibb on 2014-03-26.

To ask the Secretary of State for Education, pursuant to the Answer of 24 March 2014, Official Report, columns 83-4W, on the School Information (England) (Amendment) Regulations 2012, if he will make an assessment of the level of compliance with those regulations among state-funded schools and academies.

Mr David Laws

If a parent, or other party, believes that a school is not complying with the requirements, they are entitled to raise this with the governing body. If their complaint is not resolved and they believe that the school has failed to discharge its duty or acted unreasonably, they can raise their complaint with the Secretary of State.

Ofsted routinely checks school websites ahead of inspection.
