KS4 Inspection Data Summary Reports (IDSR)

09 January 2018

Ofsted has published its new-look Key Stage 4 report which replaces the old ‘inspection dashboard’. Primary IDSRs were launched in autumn 2017 and data on secondary schools has now followed suit. The reports can be accessed via the Analyse School Performance (ASP) section of your school’s DfE Secure Access site and can be found under the ‘List of reports’ tab on the left. According to Ofsted, the IDSRs hold unamended data for Key Stage 4, Key Stage 2, Key Stage 1, phonics, and context data, and all have been updated with the latest absence and exclusions data.

Please ensure the version you use is dated 4 January 2018. It is expected that Ofsted’s guidance will be updated shortly.

ASCL’s Inspections and Accountability Specialist, Steve Rollett, wrote a short piece in SecEd on Ofsted’s approach to data, which might be useful in helping you to understand the new IDSR.
