School of Sanctuary

Ashton Park School has an increasing number of EAL students within our school community, with at least 34 different home languages in use. EDI is a whole school priority, as we ensure that our school values of respect, determination, and community encompass all.  Fostering a sense of belonging has been central to our school culture, and this is reflected in and out of the classroom.

As we strive to provide the best possible support for those in our care, we have engaged with Bristol as a City of Sanctuary, as we work towards becoming a School of Sanctuary.

This has involved us signing the following organisational pledge:

“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 context. We expect our branches or local groups (if any) to support their local City of Sanctuary group if one exists, and will facilitate contact between them and their local City of Sanctuary group.”

We are willing for our organisation’s name to be added to a list of supporters of City of Sanctuary, linked to our website. We are also willing to be contacted by City of Sanctuary with further ideas for how we can turn our support into practical action and to discuss ways we might work together to promote the vision further."
