ISC statement on the political and policy ramifications of Brexit

 

A negative impact on funding is anticipated in the state sector and any downturn in the economy affects us all. With respect to visa requirements, any changes will take time to work through and we will lobby for the best interests of our sector.

Current proposed policy changes may slow and there is an expectation of future changes to educational policy as a result of changes in political leadership.

There is speculation over the possibility of a delay to the apprenticeship levy (currently planned for September 2017) and HE institutions are particularly concerned about loss of EU funding.

It is unclear at this stage what happens to the current EU-related legislative programme. Once Article 50 is triggered, it is expected to take at the very least two years to work through all constitutional and statutory implications.

We know that our sector has been through major challenges before and is able to adapt and respond to more. Heads will wish to send reassuring messages to the school community and especially to parents of EU pupils who need to know that there is no immediate change of policy.

"If anything, schools now need to reinforce an understanding of the impact of Europe on our culture"

 

24 hours after the news that Britain would leave the European Union, ISC Chairman Barnaby Lenon looks at what it may mean for independent schools.
