Information on National Pupil Database data sharing

The request was partially successful.

Dear Department for Education,

I refer to plans to open up access to the National Pupil Database:

I would like to request:

1) A list of those organisations that have requested access to the data since July 2013, which subsets of the data they have requested, and the stated purpose of their requests.

2) A list of which of these requests have been granted.

As some parts of this request may take longer to respond to than others, please respond as information is complete for each, rather than delaying all parts due to one.

Yours faithfully,

Emma Woollacott

Department for Education
