To ask Her Majesty’s Government why the recently published Ofsted inspection framework does not make any reference to the role of parents and families in developing the personal, social and health education of children and in preparing those children for carrying out a role as parents in the future.

The purpose of Ofsted school inspection is to assess the quality of education provided by the school for its pupils. This includes reporting on how well the school’s provision supports pupils’ personal development, behaviour and welfare, and their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. In addition, Ofsted’s school inspection handbook does require inspectors to consider how well leaders and governors engage with parents, carers and others in supporting pupils.
