During November Ofsted will be removing historic Inspection Data Summary Reports (IDSRs) from the Analyse School Performance (ASP) website. If you want to keep a copy of your historic IDSRs, you should download and save them before they are removed.
Ofsted has published a prototype for the new IDSR for 2019 (download here)
In preparing for the new Education Inspection Framework (EIF), Ofsted has re-developed the Inspection Data Summary Report (IDSR). The new IDSR will contain fewer charts and will be shorter in length than previous versions. The prototype has been published ahead of the final IDSR product and as such, final content may be changed. The new IDSR has been designed to:
The new report will continue to contain 'areas of interest' sentences to highlight trends and differences from national data. Existing contextual information will remain but will be presented in the charts that were in the 2017 IDSR.
What’s new in the IDSR?
What else is changing?
The IDSR will become a new ‘service’ and have its own dedicated area in DfE Sign-In. Schools will still be able to access their IDSR through DfE’s Analyse School Performance website by following a link to the new IDSR service. Schools can then download and save their IDSR as before. There will not be a requirement for new login details.
Ofsted will publish new guidance alongside the first 2019 IDSR release.
