Schools of Sanctuary are a network of over 340 nurseries, schools and sixth forms committed to creating a culture of welcome and belonging for people seeking safety in the UK. Awarded schools have demonstrated how they work to welcome and meet the needs of students from refugee and asylum-seeking backgrounds, whilst ensuring that everyone within the school community has learnt about forced displacement.
