Ofsted results for schools in selective areas

Joanne Bartley made this Freedom of Information request to Office for Standards in Education, Children's Services and Skills

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

Dear Ofsted,

The DfE now classify secondary schools by admission basis using the following designations for statistical purposes:

Selective schools
Non-selective schools in highly selective areas
All other non-selective schools
All state-funded mainstream schools

(See 11 here https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/sy...)

I believe the DfE also sometimes classify schools as 'non-selective school in area with selection.' This signifies areas with a few grammar schools but not fully selective areas. If they do have this as a designation then please add this as a fifth category for the purposes of the data I am requesting.

Please could you send me details of the Ofsted ratings for schools by these 4/5 admission type categories in Excel format.

I would like to see :

1) The number of state mainstream secondary schools (so excluding independent or special schools) in each admission type category, with how many schools are Outstanding, Good, Requires Improvement, Special Measures, & have no current Ofsted rating.

2) In addition for the Non-selective schools in highly selective areas please can I have the same break down of Ofsted results, but also by whether the school has :

No religious character stated
Religious character stated (any faith listed eg. Catholic, C of E, Methodist.)

3) If the DfE DO define schools by 'Non-selective schools in areas with some selection' then please also provide the point 2 faith / non-faith results data for this school admission type.

Thank you for your help with this request.

Yours faithfully,

Joanne Bartley
