Immigration guidance for teachers

Every child has the right to compulsory education, and the right to be in school. Immigration status does not affect this. The guidance on this page was put together as part of the ‘Belonging’ schools toolkit, designed by Coram Life Education and young people from Coram’s Young Citizens programme.

Children’s best interests

This page provides information on the concept of children’s best interests, why this concept is important and how to apply it to work with migrant and refugee children.
