Summary: The Guide aims to strengthen the capacity of school communities, at both primary and secondary levels, to promote a supportive school environment for refugee students and their families, to nurture the mental health and wellbeing of refugee students and to enhance their educational outcomes. It also promotes social connectedness between refugee families and the school community. The purpose of the Guide is to provide all staff (administrators, teachers and non-teaching personnel) with strategies to help refugee students overcome learning difficulties and adjust to a new environment. Intended for use at both primary and secondary levels, the Guide outlines strategies for the classroom and wider school programs. It has been designed as an easy-to-use reference tool, specifically tailored to enable schools to improve the delivery of education to these students. Because there is a variety of school settings available to refugee students, and a range of experience among schools and staff in teaching refugee students, the format of the Guide has been developed in such a way as to allow schools to identify and implement the most appropriate policies, programs and structures for their particular school environment.
