Pupil Data Wales: the national database characteristics

The request was partially successful.

Dear Welsh Government,

Please could you confirm with reference to the Welsh National Pupil Database:

1. As a snapshot of data on the date of March 31, 2017: the total number of unique individuals' data stored in the database for all time. This may be the total quantity of unique pupil numbers (UPN) (please confirm that this is UPN not pupil reference matching numbers or list the quantity of both).

2. Provide the document / terms of reference that state the retention period of the records (please state the retention period simply in free text if no document exists).

3. Please provide the table of charges which an applicant must meet in order to receive data, for example standard or bespoke extracts of NPD data.(For reference please see the health data model equivalent: http://www.hscic.gov.uk/media/14839/DARS... )

4. Does your release process standardly or as an exception supress or releases small numbers? If so, to how many?

5. How many audits were made of receiving data organisations since April 2012, pertaining to the data provided to them?

I would be grateful if you are able to provide these as soon as possible and within the maximum 20 days permitted under the FOI act (ref: https://ico.org.uk/media/for-organisatio....

Thank you for your consideration.

Sincerely,

Jen Persson

Welsh Government
