Practical Ways to Support New Arrivals

Monaghan, Frank (2004). Practical Ways to Support New Arrivals. Reading: National Centre for Language and Literacy.


The aim of this book is to provide practical advice on how best to support newly arrived bilingual pupils. As chance would have it, I began writing this introduction the day after it was announced in the Queen’s Speech to Parliament in 2004 that asylum-seekers may be subject to electronic tagging and that those who do not leave the country when their application for asylum is rejected will lose all entitlement to benefits, which may mean their children will be taken into care. It was not a good time to be a ‘new arrival’ in the UK.
