First Schools of Sanctuary for Chester!

St Martin’s Academy and Chester Bluecoat CE Primary School have become the first schools in Chester to be awarded ‘School of Sanctuary’ status. Both schools exhibited their understanding of why people are forced to flee from their homes and the need to offer sanctuary seekers a place of safety. We’d like to congratulate both schools  on their work and look forward to seeing  them sharing their experiences with other schools and their own continued practice. Congratulations to everyone involved!

Below we share some photos of the event at St Martin’s with pupils and staff receiving the award from our representative.
