Abstract

Investigates the role of the school in contributing to the integration of Polish migrant children, and explores their experience of school and of relations between home and school. Finds that, despite many examples of good practice throughout Scotland, schools are not always assessing new pupils' abilities appropriately. Highlights the limited information available to teachers on children's backgrounds and prior achievements. Considers whether schools' expectations of some pupils may be too low, and the issue of language barriers and lack of understanding of the school system by the parents of migrant children.
