Dunstall Hill are extremely proud to be an official ‘School of Sanctuary’.
What is a School of Sanctuary?
It is a school that is committed to being a safe and welcoming place for those seeking sanctuary. It is a space for those whose lives were in danger in their own country, who have troubles at home or are just looking for a space where they can feel safe.
We help pupils, staff and our 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.
We are a school that is proud to be a place of safety and inclusion for all.
As part of our School of Sanctuary initiative we aim to:
- Promote positive attitudes within schools and their communities around people seeking sanctuary
- Support schools to take positive steps and to be proud of being places of safety and inclusion for all
- Recognise and celebrate schools that are committed to welcoming and supporting people seeking sanctuary
