Recent updates

School Characteristics 2018 data is now available in ASP. This updates provides a basic characteristics trends report and a basic characteristics by national curriculum year group report.

Provisional 2018 key stage one and phonics (with disadvantage data) is now available in ASP. Please note, users will need to have school named access (through their DfE sign-in account) in order to view pupil-level data. 

2018 absence data (two-term) is also available in ASP. This data includes all absences reported during the autumn term 2017 and spring term 2018.

The 2018 primary Inspection Data Summary Reports (IDSRs) are now available on ASP. The primary IDSRs hold provisional data for key stage two, key stage one, phonics, and context data. This includes data for disadvantaged pupils.

Data management

  • Data management is now available in ASP. This allows school named users to create  "what if" scenarios and explore the impact on the measures by removing one or more pupils from their phonics, KS1, KS2 or KS4 data so they can see how their data looks in different scenarios. For example, users can create a custom view showing the performance of pupils with EAL or non-mobile pupils.  
  • School users are able to toggle between their default and custom views for most headline reports (a list of reports and data items which cannot be updated by data management are shown on the data management homepage). This data management function is available for the most recent year's data held in ASP (i.e. 2017) and will be updated as and when new data becomes available.
  • The functionality has been improved to export most files to PDF or Excel.

Coming soon

In response to requests from users,  a new release timetable (which includes upcoming data releases) has been added to ASP. This is available by clicking the 'release timetable' link at the top of the page/banner once logged into ASP.
