School of Sanctuary

Graiseley Primary School is working towards the School of Sanctuary Award


What is a School of Sanctuary?

It is a school that is committed to being a safe and welcoming place for all. We help pupils, staff and our 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.


As part of our School of Sanctuary initiative some of the things we aim to are:


  • Promote positive attitudes within schools and their communities around people seeking sanctuary

  • Be a place of safety and inclusion for all

  • Commit to welcoming and supporting people seeking sanctuary

  • Sign post families to Citizens Advice and Wolverhampton Council

  • Sign post families to access foodbanks and support to provide school uniform

  • Sign post families to the Graiseley Family Hub

  • Sign post to The Refugee Migrant Centre (RMC)

  • Liaise with education and welfare officers

We are also introducing the…

Young Interpreters Scheme

This is a fantastic scheme where children support other children with little or no English. They speak a range of languages and support during break times to help children find friends and integrate into daily school life.


Our team of children receive training sessions, a badge, a notebook and an aide memoir to make them recognisable and to help them support our new children. It is a rewarding role and the successful candidates are selected because of the caring qualities they possess with a desire to help others.
