We are very pleased to say that at Freemantle C of E Community Academy we have been recognised as a ‘School of Sanctuary’ status.

This means that our school is exceptionally welcoming to children and families from all backgrounds, faiths and countries.

 

A School of Sanctuary is a school that is committed to being a safe and welcoming place for all, especially those seeking sanctuary. This could be people whose lives were in danger in their own country, who have troubles at home or are just looking for a space of safety.

A School of Sanctuary is a school that helps its students, staff and 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. It is a school that is proud to be a place of safety and inclusion for all.

 

The City of Southampton has been awarded ‘City of Sanctuary’ status and our Academy will be working in close partnership with the council.

 

There are three simple principles to being a School of Sanctuary:

 

  1. Learn about what it means to be seeking sanctuary.
  2. Take positive action to embed concepts of welcome, safety and inclusion within the school and the wider community.
  3. Share our vision and achievements – be proud!

 

We strongly believe it is a vital life skill for children to learn how to get on with people from all backgrounds and this is reflected in our school values, where we embed mutual respect between all members of the school and community. We facilitate being ready to learn about different backgrounds and cultures and being responsible for making sure every child feels safe and welcome at Freemantle C of E Community Academy.

 

If you wish to get involved in School of Sanctuary activities, please contact Mrs Grove at Karen.grove@freemantleschool.co.uk for more information or call into the school and see her.
