School of Sanctuary

What is a School of Sanctuary?

It is a school that is committed to being a safe and welcoming place for all. We help pupils, staff and our 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.

As part of our School of Sanctuary initiative some of the things we aim to are:

  • Promote positive attitudes within schools and their communities around people seeking sanctuary
  • Be a place of safety and inclusion for all
  • Commit to welcoming and supporting people seeking sanctuary
  • Sign post families to Citizens Advice and Wolverhampton Council
  • Sign post families to access foodbanks and support to provide school uniform
  • Sign post families to the Dove Family Hub
  • Sign post to The Refugee Migrant Centre (RMC)
  • Liaise with education and welfare officers
