The information requested is not currently available.

The data published by Ofsted shows the number of schools rated as Outstanding, Good, Requires Improvement, and Inadequate, which can be easily extracted from the published data.

The proportion of secondary schools rated as Requires Improvement was 32% in August 2010, and this has changed to 16% in August 2020.

The proportion of all schools rated as Requires Improvement was 30% in August 2010, and this has changed to 10% in August 2020.
