St Gabriel’s College, Lambeth – our first Refugee Welcome School.
Refugees Welcome Schools
Welcoming and caring for children and young people as soon as they arrive is an extremely important part of the resettlement. To this end we’d like as many schools as possible to sign up to become refugees welcome schools. This means making a commitment to plan and perform the following:
- Prepare local students for the arrival of refugees
- Make arriving children feel welcome and make integration as easy as possible with targeted English language programmes
- Engage with the community to promote resettlement
Invitation to the Refugees Welcome Schools Summit
On Tuesday 21st June we’ll be having a summit for primary and secondary schools, hosted at Saint Gabriel’s College. If you’re interested in sending a delegation of one staff member and four pupils to discuss and share ideas about welcoming young refugees to the UK, please download the invitation below.
