Communication from Ofsted

We are pleased to inform you that the new 2019 inspection data summary report (IDSR) for primary data, is now available through a link to the new Ofsted IDSR service in DfE’s Analyse School Performance (ASP).

The primary IDSRs hold provisional data for key stage 2, key stage 1 and phonics, and context data.

This year, the children looked after collection closure date, was delayed (due to technical issues) by five weeks. Therefore, the children looked after data and data for disadvantaged pupils will not be included until the revised data releases.


We have also published a new guidance document for the primary IDSR. You can find the new guidance here:

School inspection data summary report (IDSR) guide (GOV.UK)

At the same time as the provisional secondary release (due November), we will be removing historic IDSRs from ASP. Any users wishing to keep a copy of their historic IDSRs are advised to download and save their IDSRs before they are removed later in the autumn term.


Should you have any IDSR data queries, please contact:
