IDSR (Inspection Data Summary Report) Full Review

Interpretation of your Inspection Data Summary Report from Ofsted (IDSR)

Ofsted inspectors use a school’s Inspection Data Summary Report (IDSR) as the starting point for any inspection with its front page summarising the key threads for the inspector’s enquires.

Our For Schools experts can provide your school with commentary to explain and interpret your Inspection Data Summary Report. Page by page commentary makes sense of the charts and data so that it can be easily explained to staff and governors.

The commentary looks at:

  • Overall performance
  • Subject progress and outcomes over time
  • Group performance against their comparator reflecting on the differences
  • Responses to the identified “area to investigate” within the report
  • The key areas the school should consider further

We provide free telephone and Skype support for the review, and can provide more detailed training either through Skype or in person for which there is an additional charge.

Cluster and MAT groups will receive discounts and potentially free/discounted training.

The DfE’s Analyse School Performance (ASP) system that has replaced the RAISEonline system is the home for the Inspection Data Summary Report. The Inspectors as well as schools will have access to school data through ASP although it will be on an anonymised basis.
