Refugee Kids



Refugee and asylum-seeking children from around the world tell their own fresh and moving stories straight to camera.

Woven together, their stories tell of conflict at home, the dreams and disappointments of coming to Britain, and the pain and joy of family reunions and separations.

For all of the children, learning English is key to fitting in, making friends and getting the education they all value highly.

Some are already sure that Britain is home now, with all its differences in street and playground culture; some dream of going home with the skills and qualifications to help build a new country. But continuing conflict produces a bleaker outlook in others. Teachers are asked to understand that many such children have a lot on their minds, however much they appreciate school.
