In Great Britain education is compulsory until the age of 18.
Parents have a legal duty to send their child to the appropriate level mainstream school.
Whether you are planning to go back to Poland before the child graduates from school or you plan to stay in Great Britain and let the child decide for themselves whether to stay or return to Poland after turning 18, it is vital to take care of their knowledge of the Polish language as well as Polish culture. Choosing whether to pursue further educational opportunities in Poland or perhaps seek employment there, it will only be possible if they speak Polish and understand the culture. By enrolling the child for a course at one of the Polish supplementary schools, this can become a reality.
We invite you to read more about the British mainstream education and Polish supplementary schools in other sections of this page.
