School of Sanctuary
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’.
We regularly provide our children with a wealth of experiences which help them to understand and appreciate the cultures of other countries and indeed of our pupils.
Refugees by Brian Bilston performed by our EAL Champions
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.
