We are very proud to announce that in 2017 Bevois Town Primary School was awarded the status of being a ‘School of Sanctuary’.
This accreditation recognises schools that are committed to being a safe and welcoming place for all, especially those seeking sanctuary. This could be people whose lives were in danger in their own country, who have troubles at home or are just looking for a space of safety. Here at Bevois Town Primary School, we are committed to making everyone feel a valued part of the school community, and we celebrate the huge diversity within our school.
'' The commitment from leaders to establish Bevois Town as a School of Sanctuary is inspirational. Their sense of moral purpose and commitment to every human being is infectious. The project's aims are consistently upheld across all year groups and are reflected on each and every day.'' (Ofsted 2018)
This is a huge accolade for Bevois Town Primary School as it recognises the fantastic work we do across the school in supporting all of our pupils and their families. As well as our welcoming ethos, our curriculum also ensures that there are opportunities to learn, understand and take actions around the themes of human rights as well as diversity, inclusion, refuge and migration.
The award ceremony took place on Tuesday 7th November 2017 and was attended by the Year 4, 5 and 6 Learning Councillors.
Bevois Town Primary School is a school that is proud to be
a place of safety and inclusion for all.
