The problem

There are only selective, if any, news releases enabled with RSS/ATOM feeds on COI's News Distribution Service.

My ideal solution

Flick the switch and let the public subscribe via RSS/ATOM.

What I would do

Information Asset: School Performance Tables

The problem

The DCSF school performance tables are available on the DCSF website ( but not in a format that is easily usable.

My ideal solution

I would like to access this data in a more convenient format (preferably XML, or through a REST API). I would also like to link this data with other information sources about schools (e.g. Ofsted reports) so it is important to have a universal system of school identifiers (currently DCSF and Ofsted appear to use independent systems).

What I would do

I would use it in my google maps schools mashup ( to help people to access information about local schools more conveniently.
