What is School of Sanctuary?

School of Sanctuary

We have achieved the School of Sanctuary award, which we earned in the Summer Term of 2014. With this in mind we would like to bring you up to date with the benefits this award will bring to our community.

Schools of Sanctuary is an initiative which aims to:
 promote positive attitudes within schools and their communities around people seeking sanctuary
 support schools to take positive steps and to be proud of being places of safety and inclusion for all
 recognise and celebrate schools that are committed to welcoming and supporting people seeking sanctuary.

Schools of Sanctuary aim to create a safe environment that includes everybody in school, regardless of where people come from or what they look like.

A School of Sanctuary is a school that is committed to being a safe and welcoming place for those seeking sanctuary. It is a space for those whose lives were in danger in their own country, who have troubles at home or are just looking for a space where they can feel safe.

A School of Sanctuary is a school that helps its students, staff and wider community
understand what it means to be seeking sanctuary and to extend a welcome to everyone as equal, valued members of the school community. It is a school that is proud to be a place of safety and inclusion for all.
