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.

When parents separate they both still have certain responsibilities regarding their children. This includes ensuring that their children have somewhere to live and providing for them financially.
