Overview of the IDSR:

This guide is for primary and secondary IDSRs.

The IDSR is a PDF file showing data for Ofsted inspectors to use when preparing for and during inspection. The IDSR is designed to align with our school inspection handbook, so that areas of interest can be used to identify inspection trails.

IDSR 2019

We have re-developed the IDSR following the introduction of the new education inspection framework (EIF). The 2019 IDSR contains fewer charts and is reduced in size.

Supporting data tables

This file is in an OpenDocument format

Supporting data tables used for the 2019 IDSR show national figures and quintile boundaries used to determine whether areas of interest sentences are triggered.

The new IDSR has been designed to:

  • reduce the time spent preparing for an inspection
  • provide interpretation of the data for inspectors
  • minimise the focus on small groups that distract the conversation away from meeting the needs of all pupils

The IDSR continues to contain areas of interest sentences to highlight important data trends and differences from national data. Existing contextual information remains but is presented in the charts that were in the 2017 IDSR.

The new IDSR contains:

  • new contextual information including workforce census data, financial data, multi-academy trust (MAT) and local authority information and school links
  • new subject attainment sentences at key stage 4 to highlight potential subject areas to focus on
  • new attainment trend charts
  • a re-structured primary report to focus on subjects across the school, such as reading/literacy
  • a reduced focus on pupil group performance
  • expanded destinations data, to include breakdown of pupil destinations for the past 3 years
