Refugees in Schools

Parent-school relationships help refugee pupils to integrate This programme highlights problems facing refugee schoolchildren in Britain and how schools in Birmingham have been working with parent partnerships to help children settle in to school.

‘Refugees in Schools’ shows Somalian children and their families being helped to integrate into British society through schools working with the parents.

The schools work with Parent Partnership co-ordinators who provide a vital link between the families and the school.

This relationship is explored on film, following the co-ordinator on a home visit and featuring interviews with parents, giving an insight into the culture of families, which is vital for teachers working with the children.
