Schools are being offered guidance and research-based ideas and approaches to help develop sustainable education and pastoral provision for refugee pupils.

″Look at all the things that I am capable of, and think of all the things you could call me – a student, a lover of literature, a budding architect, a friend, a symbol of hope even, but what am I called? A refugee.”
Refugee Boy, Benjamin Zephaniah

The Bell Foundation, a charity offering resources for schools to support the education of children who use English as an additional language, has published new guidance entitled “Recommendations for sustainable provision in schools, for children who are refugees”.

A year ago, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine caused the largest population movement in Europe since the Second World War. At the same time, the UK is also seeing refugees arriving from Afghanistan, Hong Kong, Syria, and other countries. And of course, this includes many children whose education will have been interrupted.
