Schools of Sanctuary

Brighton & Hove is part of the City of Sanctuary movement – locally Sanctuary on Sea which aims to:

·         celebrate common humanity and contributions made by those who have come here for safety

·         tackle isolation, fear, and exclusion by creating a culture of welcome.


Other cities of sanctuary have run schools of sanctuary programmes. In Brighton & Hove as part of the Schools of Sanctuary programme we would like to encourage settings to build on the good practice they have in place to further develop their school or setting so that it is a place of sanctuary, welcome and belonging.
Please see support materials for the Brighton & Hove Schools of Sanctuary Programme in the folder to the left of this page. To the left of this page you will also find a range of links to websites providing information and resources that support teaching and learning about refugees.
