What is a School of Sanctuary?

The School of Sanctuary award is available to all school in the Bradford district. The award recognises and rewards good practice. Schools need to:

  1. Learn about what it means to be seeking sanctuary and about the lives of asylum seekers and refugees in the UK.
  2. Embed this knowledge and understanding in the curriculum and the daily life of the school.
  3. Share this new knowledge with the school’s wider community.

You can find out more in our Schools of Sanctuary Resource Pack.

If you’d like to see how far your school is along the Sanctuary Award journey, why not try out our helpful schools’ audit tool? Also see our Checklist for accreditation and Prompt Sheet. For teaching resources, CDP, training ideas and inspiration, see the Bradford Schools and Colleges of Sanctuary Teaching Resource Pack.
