Schooling in England: a toolkit for newly arrived migrant parents and practitioners working with migrants

The school system in England differs in many ways from that in other countries. In England schooling starts earlier than in many countries, generally before the child’s fifth birthday. Many parents and children, especially if they have only just arrived in Britain, are unprepared for this. Choosing a school and getting a child enrolled can be complicated, especially if you are unfamiliar with the system.

The aim of this toolkit is to provide information and guidance to help migrant families and practitioners negotiate the school system and to suggest ways in which to support children settle into school and in progressing through primary school and the transition to secondary school.
