Schools of Sanctuary

 

What is a School of Sanctuary?

 

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.

 

At Earlsdon Primary, we want all children to feel safe and welcome, so we are working towards becoming a School of Sanctuary, by learning about refugees and asylum seekers, embedding our learning on sanctuary into our curriculum and sharing out experiences with the local community and other sanctuary seekers.

 

“We support the ‘City of Sanctuary’ vision that the UK will be a welcoming place of safety for all and proud to offer sanctuary to people fleeing violence and persecution. 

 

We endorse the City of Sanctuary Charter, and agree to act in accordance with City of Sanctuary values and apply the network principles within our work (as far as our specific context enables us to).

 

We recognise the contribution of people seeking sanctuary. Sanctuary seekers are welcomed, included and supported within our context. We expect our branches or local groups (if any) to support their local City of Sanctuary group if one exists, and will facilitate contact between them and their local City of Sanctuary group.”
