This field records a student's ethnicity.
|Valid entries and labels|
This field contains the subset of codes applicable to England from the Student.ETHNIC field in the Student record.
Ethnicity is recorded on the basis of the student's own self-assessment.
Code 80 'Other ethnic background' should be used when a student indicates their ethnicity as something not included in the coding frame.
Code 90 'Not known' can be used when a student genuinely does not know their ethnicity, for example individuals who were adopted.
Code 98 'Information refused' should be returned when a student has explicitly refused to provide the information. The phrase 'Prefer not to say' can be used when collecting the data.
The Equality Challenge Unit (ECU) has a number of resources relating to gathering information across the protected characteristics covered by the Equality Act 2010. These resources can be found at Equality Challenge Unit. If you have any further queries regarding equality monitoring, please email ECU at [email protected].
