    I understand this information to be key for governors. As a gov in a secondary school, I have requested this information.

    I have now received this. However, I’m not sure if I have all the information that is available with the report.

    question. Should this also contain the Ofsted Data Dashboard which provides areas of strengths and weakness? My info does not have this.
    Would be grateful for advice thank you.

    There are two documents: the ASP, which has lots of tables & specific information, and the IDSR, which has a summarised form for inspectors. Both are unvalidated at this stage, meaning that, depending on the context of the school, disapplications or marking appeals, it may well change before it's finalised. IDACI is a national system of ranking postcodes by wealth which is unrelated.

    They are separate documents, and it depends what you've asked for - it isn't automatic that you'd receive one with the other.

    I'd add a note of caution about governance though. Your post reads as though you've emailed the school to ask for these documents out of the blue. A much better protocol should be that analysis and circulation of these documents should be rightly on an agenda for either FGB or a committee, and you should be asking your chair to make sure these are there to inform governor discussion. That way, the documents are circulated to all governors (so that they can come to a collective opinion), and the school can provide commentary/explanations etc in the meeting. Twelve (or so) individual governors asking for documents ad hoc and drawing their own conclusions just doesn't work.
