Guideline for Head Teachers


6. Approaches and Strategies


  1. Mobilise and involve all school and community actors.
  2. Create school and community answers to the immigrant students’ needs and expectations.
  3. Develop in schools a welcoming policy for the immigrant students: making a tour of the school, explaining the organisation of the studies, courses and diploma, informing students on the rules and values of the school, informing them on the people they can turn to in case of problems or questions.
  4. Give immigrant students adjusted curricular and extra-curricular solutions - establishing specific assistance for newly-arrived students, adapting the educational practices and reinforcing the language development and the acquisition of the national language.
  5. Implement a mediation or conflict resolution program, when problems arise.
  6. Engage students of all ethnicities in projects, exercises and learning workshops that allow the achievements and rich heritages of each culture represented to be explored.
