Leeds Schools Initiative

What is a School of Sanctuary?
It is a school that is committed to being a safe and welcoming place for people whose lives were in danger in their own country. This means 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.
