What is a School of Sanctuary?
“We all have a part to play in building a welcoming and inclusive society.”
‘We are a national network of over 400 primary and secondary schools, nurseries and sixth forms all committed to creating a culture of welcome and inclusion for refugees and people seeking asylum.
Driven by teachers, school staff, parents, governors and community groups, this network supports the thousands of young people seeking sanctuary in the UK, raises awareness of the issues facing people in the asylum system, challenges misconceptions and builds social cohesion. Schools are supported every step of the way either by an accredited Local Lead or by the Schools of Sanctuary Team at City of Sanctuary UK.’

Our Work With Refugees
Click this link to find out about the recent ‘Away Day’ we hosted to show our support for refugees in Wales:
Year 6 worked closely with our friend Michael who was originally from the DRC, he became our DRC expert, helping us to find out and learn all about the culture, lifestyle and traditions in the DRC.
We produced presentations for the rest of the school to show what life is like in the DRC.

The children were lucky to have a visit from Hawkar Salih, also known as Hisham Saeed, who came in to speak to the children about his journey to the UK!
Here is the presentation he shared with the pupils:
Thank you for visiting us Hawkar, we hope to see you again soon!
