As a School of Sanctuary, Bedford, and its school community aims to extend a hand of friendship to those who need it; making everyone feel equal and valued as part of our ‘school family’.
In the coming months we will be exposing our children to a wealth of experiences which will help us to understand and appreciate the cultures of other countries and indeed of our pupils. We welcome your support, help and ideas in the coming months in preparation for building our portfolio of activities and evidence.
On Friday 2nd March we launched our Schools of Sanctuary with a fabulous assembly led by Gill Rowlands from EMTAS and our fabulous EAL champions. We performed a small play and a poem by Brian Bilston called Refugees. Our performance really made people think about the plight of refugees and made us wonder about what it would be like to be in their shoes.
We were supported that day by St Matthews School in Anfield, who are also participating in this award.
