Ofsted and Challenge Partners

Ofsted Parent View

Parents and carers can give their views of our school at any time of the school year and at the time of a school inspection using an online questionnaire called Parent View.

When our school is notified of its next Ofsted inspection, parents will be invited to give their views about the school to inspectors using the Parent View online facility as this has replaced Ofsted’s paper questionnaire. Please make sure we have your most up-to-date contact details.

Please register with an email address and a password at https://parentview.ofsted.gov.uk. Once your login has been activated, it only takes a few minutes to complete answers to 12 short questions about aspects such as bullying, the quality of teaching, level of homework, etc.

Your views are important in helping inspectors make a decision about our school, and to help us know what is going well and what could be improved.

If you do not have a computer or an email address or if you would like help to use Parent View, please come into school and ask at reception.

We are delighted to announce the Quality Assurance Review (QAR) which was undertaken by the Challenge Partners organisation from 12th July – 14th July 2021, was a huge success.

The Leigh UTC achieved a rare feat: on top of the highest grades in every category, we were awarded not one but two national “Areas of Excellence” in business engagement and for the Post-16 STEM curriculum.

The judgements were as follows:

  • Leadership at all levels – Leading
  • Quality of provision and outcomes – Leading
  • The UTC continues to thrive, and our vision remains the same, since opening in 2014:
  • ‘Developing STEM professionals for the future global market’
