National Pupil Database (NPD)
We are required to provide information about students to the Department for Education as part of statutory data collections such as the school census.
Some of this information is then stored in the National Pupil Database (NPD), which is owned and managed by the Department and provides evidence on school
performance to inform research.
The database is held electronically so it can easily be turned into statistics. The information is securely collected from a range of sources including schools, local authorities and exam boards.
The Department for Education may share information from the NPD with other organisations which promote children’s education or wellbeing in England. Such organisations must agree to strict terms
and conditions about how they will use the data.
For more information, see the Department’s webpage on how it collects and shares research data. You can also contact the Department for Education with any further questions about the NPD.
Transferring data internationally
Where we transfer personal data to a country or territory outside the European Economic Area, for example where a family moves abroad, we will do so in accordance with the law.
