"In Britain the push for better exam results and league table placings has meant that the needs of refugee children are often ignored," says Children of the Storm, a charity running a nationwide campaign to get the Office for Standards in Education to recognise the need for schools to support refugee students. Other projects include: "Distribution of Square Fish", a free welcome and awareness-raising pack for refugee children and those working with them (send SAE for Pounds 1.50); a small grants scheme; and a study support club.
