Ref: 20130012

This page is updated quarterly with the latest official statistics on maintained schools and academies; older official statistics publications are then moved to the archived official statistics pages. We also publish monthly management information for maintained schools. All links are below under Associated resources.

This page has the latest official statistics on the inspection of maintained schools in England. Each quarterly release comprises of:

  • Key findings, charts and tables in Word and pdf formats
  • charts and tables in Excel format
  • individual provider level data in Excel and comma separated values (.csv) format.

Key findings for the latest official statistics: January to March 2014

On 31 March 2014 the proportion of schools judged good or outstanding at their most recent inspection reached 79%, an increase of one percentage point since 31 August 2013.

  • At 86%, the North East of England had the highest proportion of schools judged to be good or outstanding at their most recent inspection, while in Yorkshire and the Humber, only 74% of schools were judged to be good or outstanding. With 28% of schools most recently judged outstanding, London had the highest proportion of outstanding schools by a clear margin.
  • The judgement on the behaviour and safety of pupils was better than the overall effectiveness judgement in 27% of inspections in the period; this compares with 40% of inspections in the previous period. This closer alignment may be due to guidance issued to inspectors on behaviour and safety at the start of this academic year. This also may reflect an increased focus on behaviour and rigour in the way that inspectors assess it.

In the coming weeks, Ofsted will be consulting on proposed changes to its official statistics. Please check this webpage in future for further details.

The timetable for future releases of official statistics about maintained school inspections and outcomes is in the Schedule for the release of official statistics.
