Consent and Privacy Notices

As a hybrid authority through GDPR we are using “Legitimate Interest” for the lawful collection of relevant data to both our Widening Participation (WP) and NCOP programmes. As a result, we need to gather data in a variety of ways.

Primary school data

For all KS2 opportunities, each child’s parent or carer will need to complete a consent form. Please find a copy of the University of Northampton’s 1-page consent form as a downloadable resource on this page. You will need to collate the consent forms and bring to the university opportunity that you are attending.

Secondary school data

Year 7 & 8 opportunities

For all year 7 and 8 opportunities, each child’s parent or carer will need to complete a consent form. Please find a copy of the University of Northampton’s 1-page consent form as a downloadable resource on this page. You will need to collate the consent forms and bring to the university opportunity that you are attending.

Year 9, 10, 11 and post 16 opportunities

Schools will need to host on your website and annually within your newsletter, either:

  • A University of Northampton Privacy Notice if you are a WP school

or

  • An NCOP Privacy Notice if you are an NCOP school or college

You will need to refer to it when writing to parents/carers about any opportunity you are participating in with the university. No consent form will be needed; however, you will need to provide by password protected email, a digital register for the event which will include the following information about the cohort of children attending the university opportunity:

School name
First name
Surname name
Date of birth (DOB)
Post code
LAC
Ethnicity

An Information Sharing Agreement (ISA) will be in place between the university and your school/college to allow this information to be provided to the University of Northampton (please check with your data manager or Headteacher).
