ISC CEO on the impact of Labour's school fee tax plans on cross-sector partnerships

Posted on: 27 Sept 2023

Julie Robinson, chief executive of the Independent Schools Council (ISC), responds to reports that Labour's tax plans for independent schools could restrict partnership working.

Speaking to iNews, Ms Robinson said: "Partnership work is at the heart of what many independent schools do, and we know they will do everything they can to keep schemes and projects running. It would be a real shame if Labour’s tax on children’s education led to a decrease in the valuable education initiatives at the heart of many communities."
