Analyse School Performance

Ofsted’s IDSR (Inspection Data Summary Report) – Primary Phase

  • EYFSP – GLD. Our analysis of the IDSR will start with the Early Years Foundation Stage Profile, and the Good Level of Development analysis. We’ll also see what your FSM pupils are compared with non-FSM pupils, and what a “small cohort” size is for Ofsted.
  • EYFSP – ELGs, and Phonics. Our analysis of the IDSR continues with the Early Years Reading, Writing and Maths Analysis, and then continues with the Phonics analysis.
  • Key Stage 1 and 2. In this article we’ll have a look at the Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 charts (taking Key Stage 1 as an example), and seeing what how Emerging, Expected and Exceeding cohorts are calculated.
  • “Diff no”. In this article we’ll have a look at the “Diff no” column in the Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 attainment charts.
  • Key Stage 2 Progress Charts. In this article, we’ll have a look at a summary of how progress is calculated, and what the shapes in the progress charts represent.
  • Key Stage 2 Progress Significance. In this article, we’ll have a look at how Ofsted interprets the Key Stage 2 progress, and how this is displayed in the public Compare School Performance website.
  • How is Key Stage 2 Progress calculated? In this article, we’ll look at the mechanism behind the calculation of your school’s Key Stage 2 Progress.
  • IDSR Pages 2 to 4. In this article, we’ll look at the pages in your IDSR which show your Characteristics, Absence and Exclusions, and Key Stage 2 Trends over Time.
  • Areas to investigate. In this article, we’ll look at page 1 of your IDSR, which used to be called “Strengths and Weakness”, and see how Ofsted summarizes your data.
