Using Ofsted’s IDSR: EYFS profile to KS4

All Schools
Guidance for the primary and secondary inspection data summary report (IDSR)

These documents provide inspectors and schools with information and guidance about Ofsted’s new inspection data summary report, including:

  • general guidance on using the IDSR
  • guidance on areas of interest for the IDSR

We also include a spreadsheet that illustrates the 5 cut points dividing the range of data and determines which quintile they fall into. This is useful when analysing your school’s data to determine why your school may fall into a particular rank.

We provide anonymised inspection data summary reports, which use data to create realistic examples. Local authorities and training providers can use these when training colleagues to interpret IDSR data.
