Against Borders for Children: boycott of new nationality question in school census

From September 2016 parents, guardians and carers in England will be asked to state if their children are foreign nationals. Families can refuse to answer.

The UK Government has required childminders, nurseries, schools and colleges to collect country-of-birth and nationality data for children aged between 2 and 19.

This policy is unnecessary, divisive and puts vulnerable children at risk.

Families and schools can take action to protect children.
