At the Rosary Catholic Primary School, our Mission Statement is:
“Jesus Christ, Son of Mary, Son of God, is the centre of the Rosary Community, where we live, love and learn together.”
School of Sanctuary
We are working towards receiving an award for being a School of Sanctuary.
What is a School of Sanctuary?
A School of Sanctuary is a school that is committed to being a safe and welcoming place for all, especially those seeking a place of 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 safe space. A School of Sanctuary is a place that promotes a welcoming culture and a place of safety to those seeing sanctuary, including asylum-seeking and refugee families. It is a school that builds empathy and awareness of such issues and encourages children, parents, staff and the wider community to welcome those seeking sanctuary.
A School of Sanctuary helps its school community to understand what it means to be seeking sanctuary and to extend a welcome to everyone as equal, valued members of the community. The Rosary is a school that is proud to be a place of safety and inclusion for all.
