Refugee Week 2021



14th - 20th June 2021


Please click on the year group tabs to find out how the children at English Martyrs' recognised and participated in Refugee Week.



Article 22 (refugee children)

If a child is seeking refugee or has refugee status, governments must provide them with appropriate protection and assistance to help them enjoy all the rights in the Convention. Governments must help refugee children who are separated from their parents to be reunited with them.



Article 10 (family reunification)

Governments must respond quickly and sympathetically if a child or their parents apply to live together in the same country. If a child’s parents live apart in different countries, the child has a right to visit and keep in contact with both of them.
