Bedford: Officially a School of Sanctuary
It is with great pride that we can announce that we have received confirmation that we are now officially a School of Sanctuary.
There are three principles to becoming a School of Sanctuary: learn what it means to be seeking sanctuary; take positive action to embed concepts of welcome, safety and inclusion within school and the wider community; and share school's vision and achievements - and be proud!
Mrs Lopez led the initiative at Bedford Primary: 'we are so proud that after all of our hard work towards this recognition that we can finally share this great news with our families,' said Mrs Lopez. 'It means a great deal to us as a school - and particularly our pupils and families - to believe in, and follow, the principles behind the award.'
Mrs Lopez and ten Bedford Welcome Buddies will attend a ceremony at Bootle Town Hall to receive the award.
Well done Team Bedford!
