Building Sustainable Provision in Schools for Children Who Are Refugees (Webinar)

This webinar will introduce a set of recommendations for schools to help them build effective, sustainable provision, for children who are refugees.

The Foundation has recently published recommendations which set out sustainable ways in which schools can use any available funding for refugee education, along with guidance, resources and training on how to create a welcoming multilingual community in which all learners can succeed. 

New refugee and asylum-seeking learners can be an asset to their school by creating opportunities for schools to grow into a dynamic multilingual community, which can benefit all learners. However, research shows that refugee and asylum-seeking children’s previous experiences and reasons for fleeing their home can affect their wellbeing and education in the UK. Schools, therefore, need to develop and embed appropriate systems, classroom practices and staff training to ensure both the academic and wellbeing needs of refugee and asylum-seeking learners are fully met.  

This webinar will explore:

  • Why we have developed recommendations.
  • What is the underpinning research for the recommendations.
  • Content and design features of the recommendations.
  • Suggestions for how the recommendations might be used.
