A very warm welcome to Schools of Sanctuary!

Schools of Sanctuary is a growing network of more than 300 primary and secondary schools all committed to supporting the thousands of young people seeking sanctuary in the UK, creating a culture of welcome and inclusion whilst raising awareness of the issues faced by refugees and asylum seekers.

If you are interested in your school joining this movement, then this website and the Resource Pack are designed to inspire and guide you. They share and celebrate the amazing work going on in schools and provide plenty of practical tips to get you up and running, whether you are a teacher, senior manager, support worker, or governor. We are constantly updating the website, so to receive notifications of the latest resources, activities and ideas sign up to our regular mailing list and the termly newsletter

We hold regular events to help those in the network share ideas, activities and experiences – have a look at the events page for details of upcoming webinars and meetings but also see our event recordings for past events.
