It's really important that OFSTED hear from adoptive parents about what makes a great school for your children. Please respond to the consultation if you can. AUK will be responding, and we've summarised our thoughts in case that's helpful for you. And don't forget about our Top of the Class report, which contains some views from education experts on the same subject.
