Social isolation, emotional and mental health needs

The best schools manage these by

  • Good communication between social workers/carers/parents/community groups
  • Allocating a mentor (see Entraide link www.entraideuk.org.uk/ )
  • Ensuring pupils have a safe space – a place and a person they can go to
  • Friendships and fun – making sure pupils are involved in the fun aspects of school
  • Ensuring staff and pupils are educated about refugees and asylum seekers – good online resources can be found at the schools of sanctuary, Oxfam and The Refugee Council websites
