The new Ofsted Inspection Dashboards are now available for each school to download from RAISEonline. These are different to the existing Ofsted School Data Dashboards, which show a brief overview of each school’s performance data and are publically available on Ofsted’s website. Each Inspection Dashboard is only accessible to the school it concerns. It is primarily aimed at inspectors undertaking the new short inspections of ‘good’ schools, and features charts showing some of the headline data from RAISEonline. However, governors and trustees, particularly those who are expecting a short inspection, may find it useful to look at their school’s Inspection Dashboard as part of their wider data monitoring.
They only include 2014 data currently, but will be updated once the 2015 data is available on RAISEonline – for primary schools this should be mid-October and for secondary schools the end of November.
