The Department has regular discussions with Ofsted on a range of matters concerning the school curriculum.

Ofsted and faith organisations contributed to the relationships and sex education consultation and were part of the round table engagement face to face meetings in Autumn 2018. The Department is committed to supporting schools to teach all subjects to a high standard and, therefore, will continue to work with subject experts and Ofsted to ensure that schools are well supported.
