If the school has opted into the evaluation, we will collect your name and email address from the DfE. We will then sharethis information with the evaluator, RAND, for the above purpose. Please see RAND’s privacy notice on their website for more information about the evaluation and how they will use your information.

How long we keep it

We will retain your contact details until the end of the project in Summer 2023. At this point your contact information will be deleted.
