School of Sanctuary
As a diverse and vibrant school in the heart of Cardiff, we are proud of our long tradition of working with young asylum seekers and refugees and their families. We do our best to welcome and include all of our pupils and their families.
One of the ways we are doing this is through allying ourselves with Schools of Sanctuary.
Schools of Sanctuary is 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
At Fitzalan, we have been working hard to ensure that pupil experiences are inclusive and representative. We do this through our curriculum, both in and out of the classroom, our work with our school community and through our wellbeing provision.
