Everyone attending will have the chance to:

  • meet others who want their schools to help students, staff and wider community members understand what it means to be seeking sanctuary and to extend a welcome to everyone as equal, valued members of the school community;


  • learn from others how to develop a curriculum and a whole school ethos, that benefits and enables all in a school’s community, to empathise with the plight of others, and, through a range of strategies which stimulate critical thinking about human rights, to dispel negative myths surrounding those seeking refuge;


  • be inspired by those with passion and enthusiasm for the work they have done, and are doing, under the ‘umbrellas’ of Schools of Sanctuary and the Global Learning Programme.

A free lunch will be provided for all in attendance.
