Data Dashboard - The Data Dashboard provides a snapshot of performance in a school, college or other further education and skills providers. The dashboard can be used by governors and by members of the public to check performance of the school or provider in which they are interested. 


The Data Dashboard complements the Ofsted inspection report by providing a summary of results data over a three year period and comparisons to other schools or providers. The data should be used by governors to generate key questions to support and challenge the leadership team.  


Parent View - Ofsted gather the views of parents and carers about the quality of education provided by their 

children's schools via the Parentview website.  This website has a section for every school in England, and asks 12 questions about the school.


We encourage all parents and carers with children at Ongar Primary School to complete the Ofsted Parentview survey each year to provide information for Ofsted when they visit our school.
