Children of the 2020s Study

Children of the 2020s Study: Adding Other Information FAQs

What are administrative records?

Why is adding other information helpful?

Why does the study include adding information from your and your child’s DfE records?  

Why do we want to ask permission to add information from your and your child’s NHS records?

Why do we want to add information from your child’s other parent/guardian and/or your partner’s records?

For example, adding information from their health records will allow researchers to see the impact of their health on your child and understand their needs as a parent or carer better.

Keeping your and your child’s information safe

Who will use the information and what for?

It’s your choice

You can decide to add information from all of the records we ask about, from just some of the records, or to add nothing at all – it is your choice.

Your decision about whether or not to allow us to add information from your and your child’s records will not affect your or your child’s services, rights, treatment or any health insurance. It will not affect your benefits or tax. You can still take part in Children of the 2020s even if you do not give permission for your other information to be added.
