What is the IDSR?

Ofsted’s Inspection Data Summary Report is a document that is used by Inspectors to prepare for short inspections and informs the initial conversation between HMI and the headteacher.

Ofsted have designed it to show at a glance how well previous cohorts demonstrated characteristics of good or better performance showing a brief overview of published data for the last three years using visual displays.

Therefore, headteachers and school leaders need to have a thorough understanding of their exam results, the ASP (Analyse School Performance) and IDSR (Inspection Data Summary Report).

How to find it

We are pleased to inform you that the new inspection data summary reports (IDSR) for primary data are now available through a link to the new Ofsted IDSR service in DfE’s Analyse School Performance (ASP).

The primary IDSRs hold provisional data for Key Stage 2, Key Stage 1, Phonics, and context data.

The DfE have also published a guidance document for the primary IDSR. https://www.gov.uk/guidance/school-inspection-data-summary-report-idsr-guide
