Foreword:Schooling in the United Kingdom has evolved over time as a result of both state and private systems. There are slight variations in the education system between the different countries of the UK. In most places, schooling is mandatory from age five, but in Northern Ireland children must start school at age four. Education then runs through to 16 on a compulsory basis, with further studies offered to age 18 at either academically focused schools or more vocational institutions. There are four main stages of education:• Pre-school (also known as nursery)• Primary School• Secondary School• UniversitiesAccording to the ONS [1], Poles are the biggest national minority in the UK. Poles dominate in each of the home countries − Scotland (99,000), Northern Ireland (29,000) and Wales (26,000). Therefore, it is very important to assess their education possibility in this country these countries?.2. Executive summary:This paper presents Poles’ performance in the United Kingdom’s education system with all the challenges and opportunities they encounter. Although the Polish community seems reasonably well-integrated, particular challenges face migrant children and their families in interacting with schooling. They bring specific issues related to the migration strategies of their parents, the different educational system in Poland and the parental expectations. 3. PerformanceResearchers led by Professor Sandra McNally, a professor of economics at Surrey University, shows that presence of Polish pupils in schools has improved the performance of other pupils in those schools.[2] 4. Challenges and opportunitiesMigrant children face Sspecial challenges and opportunities face migrant children in school. On the positive side, they are highly motivated to succeed in school. This is often because migrants have aspirations to improve their economic or social circumstances by migrating and this attitude is often transferred to their children. But a number of challenges or issues face pupils, their parents and schools: lack of English proficiency and the related demand for language support; schools’ lack of information about their new pupils; differences between teaching and learning approaches in schools. This can lead to misunderstandings between parents and schools and to frustration and disappointment.5. Data and analysisLevel statistics are currently available only for some local authorities and the results are not made available in a consistent way. Hence, is has not been possible to produce an estimate of the overall numbers of Polish pupils across different education levels. Tables Table 2 shows available data presenting on of the British school composition of nationalities. These suggest that, although Polish speaking children make up relatively small numbers compared with more established language groups, as the figures show, they are rapidly growing. The higher numbers in primary schools suggest a future growth in secondary school enrolment.Also, as we can see in Table.1. Poles number in whole country is rather significant the number of Poles in the whole country is rather significant. Table.1. shows that a smaller proportion of Polish people in London are recent arrivals than elsewhere. The figures confirm this trend. London is now only the third most popular destination for registered workers, with Anglia and the Midlands having higher numbers.Table.1. Table.2. 6. ConclusionThe Polish community, although facing many challenges, has broad access to the education system. As studies shows, in recent years they scored high grades, and what’s more their scores are better than the native-speakers on the same level. They make up a major part on of UK universities, specially Lancaster University and the University of Greenwich (169 students) [3]. Therefore, we can conclude than that the Polish community perform splendidly.7.
