We at Grangetown Primary are in the process of becoming part of 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.
Grangetown Primary is working towards recognition to be a part of the School of Sanctuary Network as we wish to prove our commitment to our pupils and families from diverse backgrounds, including asylum seeking and refugee families.
