  1. Replaced the document 'Changes to Ofsted’s statistical reporting of inspection outcomes for state-funded schools: historical datasets'. The total number of pupils on the 31 August 2016 tab was from 2017. The dataset has been updated to correctly show the total number of pupils from 2016. For the vast majority of schools the difference in the number of pupils shown is minor.

  2. Minor change to 2010 to 2015 historical data slice in the historical datasets file.

  3. First published.
