Education guidance for refugees and asylum seekers

Asylum seeker and refugee pupils aged 5-16 have exactly the same entitlement to full-time education as other UK pupils and economic migrants. This rule applies equally across Local Authority schools, academies and free schools.

This guidance has been produced to help schools support refugee and asylum seekers who move into Gateshead to continue their education and, in doing so, enable them to reach their full potential.
