There is little policy or guidance for teachers working with young asylum-seekers and refugees. They are often grouped together with EAL learners (or ‘vulnerable’ pupils more generally) but they have specific needs that can be understood and addressed. This article offers preliminary findings from a larger review of the literature, focusing on the key themes of policy, language and belonging.
