Looking for a specific campaign?


One of ISC’s core functions is to protect and promote the sector through targeted, focused and effective campaigns with policy makers and opinion formers.

We work with all sector associations to present a strong single message on matters of sector concern. We set our priorities through consultation with our member associations. Our messages are underpinned by authoritative research and analysis and are pursued using a variety of means, up to and including litigation.

ISC is already actively engaged with DfE on all of these campaign topics and will respond to all consultations.

ISC Schools that have any comments can e-mail legal@isc.co.uk and/or feedback to their associations.
