A Day of Welcome

A Day of Welcome is the only Refugee Week event specifically orientated for schools, aimed at supporting  teachers to develop a day of solidarity and learning in their school that contributes to building a culture of welcome, understanding and compassion for those forced to flee.

Founded and developed by the Norfolk Schools of Sanctuary Network, a Day of Welcome is now UK-wide.

Regardless of where you are, A Day of Welcome provides you with ideas, resources and activities that make it easy for schools and families to participate, both in school and at home. These now include free online live webinars with famous authors of children’s books about refugee experiences!

For those schools located in Norfolk, Cambridgeshire and Essex, the Day of Welcome Team also provide resources specifically designed to share little-known local histories of refugee migration. We are constantly on the look out to build up our collection of resources, so if you have materials focused on your local area please get in touch!

The Day of Welcome toolkit, teacher’s guide will be launched on the 23rd April along with the announcement of who will be joining us for this year’s FREE online events. It’s not be missed! Sign up for A Day of Welcome to keep up to date and get full access to the full package of resources, events and opportunities.
