Ref: 20130012

This is a new page which we will update for every quarterly release of school statistics from June 2013. It is complemented by an archive page for previous quarterly releases from June 2013. Statistics to December 2012 are on the Official statistics: Maintained school inspections and outcomes to June 2013 page. 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:

  • commentary, charts and tables in pdf format
  • 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: October 2013 to December 2013

  • On 31 December 2013, 79% of open schools were judged to be good or better at their most recent inspection. This is a one percentage point rise since 31 August 2013. This compares with a rise of five percentage points in the same period in 2012 and one percentage point increase in 2011.
  • The rate of improvement has slowed compared with the previous academic year. This is because in 2012/13 a large number of previously satisfactory schools were inspected, many of which improved.
  • Ninety-eight percent (1,913) of the schools inspected between 1 October 2013 and 31 December 2013 had previously been inspected. Of these, 27% improved on their previous overall effectiveness judgement. This rate of improvement is lower than in the same period in both 2011 and 2012.
  • London is the strongest performer with 86% of schools judged good or outstanding at their most recent inspection. In the weakest regions, East of England and Yorkshire and the Humber only 74% of schools were judged good or outstanding at their most recent inspection.  

For future publications the title of this statistical first release will be amended to 'Maintained schools and academies inspection outcomes’.

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