Important information from Ofsted – Inspection Data Summary Report (IDSR)

FAO: All Schools

When Ofsted release an updated Inspection Data Summary Report (IDSR), they send out an email notification to Local Authorities, which we then distribute to interested parties and to schools.

However, Ofsted has notified us that the above process has now changed.

From now on, Ofsted will make these announcements on their dedicated IDSR news and updates GOV.UK page: IDSR: news and updates - GOV.UK (

Therefore, Ofsted recommends all IDSR interested parties to sign up for email alerts to avoid missing an update.

Please see below, on how to sign up for email alerts:


If you have any questions or concerns, now or in the future, please email the dedicated IDSR email address:
