The Ofsted Data Dashboards will not be updated with 2015 data. The current dashboards will be available until 30 September 2016, after which the dashboard website will close down. Users of Ofsted’s School Data Dashboard can download PDF copies of their school’s Dashboard up until this date. Governing boards should request that headteachers provide copies of the Inspection Dashboard which will be still be available and is of use to governing boards.
The Department for Education (DfE) has recently released a new service which will replace their existing Performance Tables website. The new school comparison tool is open to the public as a Beta, which means that the DfE is seeking feedback on where it could be improved, and links on how to provide feedback are visible in several places on the new website. It can be used to compare performance data across schools, and to check individual schools, using a similar graphical presentation to the Data Dashboard.
Further links to performance data for schools are given below:
