Schools of Sanctuary

Welcome !

Still image for this video

Bignold are very proud to have been one of the first schools recognised as a School of Sanctuary in Norwich. 

We are part of the City of Sanctuary movement which holds the vision that the UK will be a welcoming place of safety for all and a place that is proud to offer sanctuary to people fleeing violence and persecution.

The Schools of Sanctuary initiative celebrates the good practice of schools who welcome asylum seeking and refugee families into their school community and foster a culture of welcome and inclusion for all.  Today there are more than 300  Schools of Sanctuary in Wales and Ireland as well as many English cities and towns.

Here is a selection of the wonderful artwork that the pupils of Bignold created for 'A day of Welcome'.

We are very much a school where every day is a day of welcome!
