One in 15 school children are from EU immigrant families

The British government have caved in to public pressure and release a report on the effects of EU immigration on our schools.

Ministers had originally intended to hold back the report until after next month's EU referendum and now we know why. The report describes the impact of EU immigration as a "huge and unsustainable pressure" on the education system.

The report says that one in 15 school children have at least one parent who is a citizen of an EU country and that is double what it was in 2007. In 2014 alone, 25,000 school children arrived in the UK. Immigration on this scale would require 27 new secondary schools and 100 new primary schools to cope with demand.
