Schools of Sanctuary

Schools of Sanctuary are a national network of over 300 primary and secondary schools all committed to creating a culture of welcome and inclusion for refugees and people seeking asylum.

Driven by teachers, school staff, parents, governors and community groups, this network supports the thousands of young people seeking sanctuary in the UK, raises awareness of the issues facing people in the asylum system, challenges misconceptions and builds social cohesion.⁣

We are committed to helping Calderdale schools along their journey to becoming Schools of Sanctuary.

If you represent a local school and would like to join this movement, please email Lisa at [email protected]
