As a response to the refugee crisis the NUT has created a hub for refugee teaching resources, booklists for primary and secondary teachers and useful websites which have been developed, used and shared by teachers for teachers.
The Welcoming Refugee Children to Your School guide provides information about ways in which you can create a refugee-friendly school, make an accessible curriculum and think about some principles of effective practice.
You may want to address their questions and concerns in class but feel unsure about how to best approach it.
The Union is aware that some teachers have already prepared their own resources about refugees for use in the classroom. Some of these are listed below, along with some suggested books and a list of useful websites.
Please send any further refugee related classroom or assembly resources that you are willing to share with other teachers to: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Organise a Refugee Poetry Competition
Why not organise a refugee poetry competition in your school or local area? See below examples of poems from the competition run in Newham which have been made into a book. The Royal Docks Community School had so many entries for their poetry competition that they created their own anthology of poems from students across the school.
