School of Sanctuary Award
We have been awarded the School of Sanctuary award for our work with asylum seekers and refugees. In particular the judges were impressed with the welcome that we have extended to new families arriving from war torn Syria and by the way we celebrate diversity and use a number of strategies to help pupils and parents become fully involved I the life of the school. The judges said:
"The school has a strong ethos of inclusion and parental engagement"
We received the award at a special event held at the school on 26th September where we were joined by Adele Owen from GARAS, other community supporters and some of the refugee families we have been supporting.
