Key partner agencies, and local education authorities, have access to the National Pupil Database. They can also interrogate Edubase, a database of information on schools. Local education authorities can also access the related Key to Success service.

Since October 2002, the following organisations have accessed data: the Office for Standards in Education; the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority; the National College for School Leadership; the General Teaching Council; the British Eductaional Communications and Technology Agency; 149 local education authorities; and Service Children's Education.
