Now that Ofsted has moved to GOV.UK youll find our content is organised differently from before.

One of the main ways to find content on GOV.UK is by searching for it. You can find the GOV.UK search box at the top of any page or you can search straight from Google or any other search engine.

This article should help you navigate your way around our content on GOV.UK while youre getting used to its new format.
