  • We can stay in contact with you, in the way you choose. 
  • You can keep up to date with the impact you are making on the lives of children with disabilities

You would have to indicate a “yes” or “opt in” for Pace to process, hold and communicate using the data you have given permission for.  You have the right to revoke that consent at any time.

Under this basis, Pace can collect, hold and process your data where it is reasonably necessary for us to do so, or it is in our legitimate interest to do so. We will ensure that our legitimate interest does not unfairly or unjustly out way your rights.

The National Pupil Database (NPD)

The NPD is owned and managed by the Department for Education and contains information about pupils in schools in England. It provides invaluable evidence on educational performance to inform independent research, as well as studies commissioned by the Department. It is held in electronic format for statistical purposes. This information is securely collected from a range of sources including schools, local authorities and awarding bodies.

We are required by law, to provide information about our pupils to the DfE as part of statutory data collections such as the school census and early years’ census. Some of this information is then stored in the NPD. The law that allows this is the Education (Information About Individual Pupils) (England) Regulations 2013.

To find out more about the NPD, go to https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/national-pupil-database-user-guide-and-supporting-information.

The department may share information about our pupils from the NPD with third parties who promote the education or well-being of children in England by:

  • conducting research or analysis
  • producing statistics
  • providing information, advice or guidance

The Department has robust processes in place to ensure the confidentiality of our data is maintained and there are stringent controls in place regarding access and use of the data. Decisions on whether DfE releases data to third parties are subject to a strict approval process and based on a detailed assessment of:

  • who is requesting the data
  • the purpose for which it is required
  • the level and sensitivity of data requested: and
  • the arrangements in place to store and handle the data

To be granted access to pupil information, organisations must comply with strict terms and conditions covering the confidentiality and handling of the data, security arrangements and retention and use of the data.

For more information about the department’s data sharing process, please visit: https://www.gov.uk/data-protection-how-we-collect-and-share-research-data

Youth support services

Pupils aged 13+

Once our pupils reach the age of 13, we also pass pupil information to the appropriate Local Authority and / or provider of youth support services as they have responsibilities in relation to the education or training of 13-19 year olds under section 507B of the Education Act 1996.

This enables them to provide services as follows:

  • Transition to other settings
  • youth support services
  • careers advice if appropriate

A parent or guardian can request that only their child’s name, address and date of birth is passed to their Local Authority or provider of youth support services by informing us. This right is transferred to the child/pupil once he/she reaches the age 16.

For more information about services for young people, please visit the Local Authority website appropriate to the pupil.
