Abbey Grange Academy is a supporting organisation of the School of Sanctuary initiative and is working towards gaining a Sanctuary Award from City of Sanctuary UK in recognition of our good practice in fostering a culture of welcome, belonging and solidarity for those seeking safety.
Abbey Grange has signed a pledge in support of the “City of Sanctuary” scheme which states that:
We support the ‘City of Sanctuary’ vision that the UK will be a welcoming place of safety for all and proud to offer sanctuary to people fleeing violence and persecution.
We endorse the City of Sanctuary Charter and agree to act in accordance with City of Sanctuary values and apply the network principles within our work (as far as our specific context enables us to).
We recognise the contribution of people seeking sanctuary. Sanctuary seekers are welcomed, included and supported within our school.
