THE OBJECTIVES OF THE ICAM PROGRAMME
Consequently the ICAM programme has developed a child and family support programme to:
Increase the awareness of children/young people affected by migration who are potential victims of exclusion and those who enter into contact with them, so that CAM understand and benefit from their rights under the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and the European Convention on the Exercise of Children’s Rights
Improve inclusion and safe learning in school by improving the whole school environment of convivencia concentrating on 10 areas of school organization which combine to create the climate of convivencia.
Develop peer led initiatives for children/young people in schools that will promote their ownership and responsibility for including all students fully in the life of the school.
Develop the whole school formal and informal curriculum for social and emotional learning (SEL) with additional support that meets the special SEL needs of CAM.
Apply lessons learned about the long term effects of displacement and bereavement on CAM during World War 2.
Through training and support reinforce the capacities of educators and families to ensure the inclusion of CAM in mainstream schools.
Apply an on-line ICAM school review instrument on SEL and the school’s organisation for convivencia and inclusion involving all stakeholders.
Reinforce cooperation between schools, families, NGOs and other agencies/organisations that are in contact with children/young people affected by migration.
