The children of immigrants now constitute a significant percentage of the population of the European Union, and their integration is a basic requirement for these children to become citizens able to contribute to the advancement of their societies and to use the benefits of the host society. A key social arena for many migrants is the school. This paper explores national, group and individual variations in support availability to Chinese migrant parents and their children, and the consequences of such support for the well-being of individuals and their communities across Europe. Whilst contact between the Chinese and the majority communities varied significantly across cultures, the Chinese felt well integrated and respected within the school system across these nations.
