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 2020

We re-developed the IDSR following the introduction of the education inspection framework (EIF) in 2019. The IDSR contains fewer charts and is reduced in size. Due to COVID-19 (coronavirus), performance-related data within the IDSR still relates to 2019. We have updated contextual information in order to include the 2020 data because it was collected before the COVID-19 outbreak.

As outlined in the school inspection handbook, inspectors will gather evidence of the impact of the quality of education from various sources. This includes nationally generated performance information about pupils progress and attainment. The IDSR can only provide a starting point, however. Inspectors want to see first-hand the quality of education as experienced by pupils and understand how well leaders know what it is like to be a pupil at the school.

Supporting data tables

This file is in an OpenDocument format

Supporting data tables used for the 2020 IDSR show national figures and quintile boundaries used to determine whether areas of interest sentences are triggered. To determine the quintile, the data for each school is percentile ranked from 1 to 100. If the score is in percentile 1 this is the highest rank. If the score is in percentile 100 this is the lowest rank. Then the ranks are grouped into 5 quintiles. Ranks 1-20 are in quintile 1, ranks 21-40 are in quintile 2 and so on. The quintile boundaries document shows which scores fall within each quintile.
