The Birmingham Schools of Sanctuary network has produced an exhibition which, at the moment, is on display in the very well-used training room of the Birmingham Pupil and Schools Support Base in the city centre.
Most Schools of Sanctuary submitted work and/or photographs, and we are hoping that the exhibition will grow as other schools get involved.
Eight of the schools have recently had a networking meeting to share their ideas and provide mutual inspiration and support. They began to plan Refugee Week which is an opportunity for including refugee issues in the curriculum.
Five schools already have the School of Sanctuary award: St Chad’s, Oasis Foundry, St. Vincent’s,St Anne’s and St Clare’s. Other primary schools working towards the awards are Featherstone, Shaw Hill, Welsh House Farm,George Dixon, St Anthony’s and St Bernard’s. Secondary schools involved are Hillcrest, Erdington Academy, Washwood Heath and Eden Boys’ .
