HeppSY Privacy Notice 14/09/21

Tue 14 Sep 2021
HeppSy have asked us to share their privacy notice with our parents and students, specifically aimed at students in Y9 to Y11. The notice can be read in full by accessing the PDF document.

We ask HeppSY partner school/colleges to provide information about all of the students in the school/college at the start of the academic year. We collect this information to identify participants for outreach activities, monitor and evaluate our work in line with other datasets, and to enable us to track individual students over time to find out whether or not they eventually apply to any form of higher education. If students have not taken part in any activity from members of the partnership, their data will be securely deleted at the end of the next academic year.

Data Sharing
Data will be processed and shared in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR, 2018) and Data Protection Act 2018, as well as all legislation enacted in the UK in respect of the protection of personal data. As Uni Connect is a collaborative programme, the information gathered will be shared between HeppSY, Sheffield Hallam University, The University of Sheffield and the Higher Education Progression Partnership(Hepp). For specific activity we may also share data gathered with other collaborative and funding partners including South Yorkshire Futures, Local Authorities, partnerschools and colleges, and the Office for Students. The overall data controllers for the HeppSY programme are Sheffield Hallam University and The University of Sheffield, unless otherwise stated in specific agreements. HeppSY and its partners will not release individual information to anyone who is unauthorised. More details about this can be found on Sheffield Hallam University and The University of Sheffield websites:


All data will be stored securely, and any reporting will be done so using aggregated data, meaning that individual students will not be identifiable. The partnership does not and will not sell personal data to third party organisations.
