Similar to the freedom information request here (FOI reference: FOI/202000044014), I would like as easily accessible download of all Education Scotland’s evaluations of schools’ quality on the six-point scale, including the Seed code, name and date of last inspection, as well as the local authority of each school. If there is already a spreadsheet linking the code of the school to the local authority, please let me know where that is.


We have provided the information that is available in the format you requested within the attached Excel spreadsheet at Annex A.

Please note the following points in relation to the information provided:

  • We are able to provide you with data from April 2008 onwards in the format you have requested.
  • Since 2008 HM Inspectors of Education inspected schools using different quality improvement frameworks and different quality indicators. The information is organised to reflect this. The information is provided according to the year of inspection and the relevant inspection framework.

Further background information is provided in the notes at Annex B.
