This year we are hoping to be awarded the status of School of Sanctuary. On our website we will share news of events that demonstrate our pride in all our families and shows how learning from others enriches all our lives.
A School of Sanctuary (SoS) is a school that is ‘committed to being a safe and welcoming place for all students and their families. It 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.’
There are three principles to becoming a School of Sanctuary:
- Learn what it means to be seeking sanctuary
- Take positive action to embed concepts of welcome, safety and inclusion within your school and the wider community.
- Share your vision and achievements – be proud!
