Communication from Ofsted

Ofsted is pleased to inform you that the new 2019 inspection data summary report (IDSR) for secondary data is now available through the new Ofsted IDSR service linked to in DfE’s Analyse School Performance (ASP).

When logged into ASP, click on ‘All reports’ and then ‘Ofsted inspection data summary reports’.

The secondary IDSRs hold provisional data for key stage 4 (and where applicable for all through schools key stage 2, key stage 1 and phonics), two term absence and context data.

This year, the children looked after collection closure date, was delayed. Therefore, the children looked after data and data for disadvantaged pupils will not be included until the revised data releases. These will be in early 2020.


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

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

This includes example reports and supporting data tables used for the 2019 IDSR which show national figures and quintile boundaries used to determine whether areas of interest sentences are triggered. Newly added links are now located throughout the IDSR, which take you directly to the relevant section of the full guidance.
