From September 2016 parents, guardians and carers in England have been asked to state if their children are foreign nationals. The Department for Education has a secretive agreement to send details of up to 1,500 children a month to the Home Office in order to create a hostile environment for migrant children. Families can refuse to answer.
The UK Government has required primary, middle, secondary schools and colleges to collect country-of-birth and nationality data for children aged between 5 and 19 (the campaign has won a concession to exclude pre-school 2-5 year-olds in childcare and nurseries). This policy is unnecessary, divisive and puts vulnerable children at risk.
You can take action to keep immigration checks out of schools and protect all children in education.
