School of Sanctuary

Engaging Communities

As part of our dedication towards becoming a school of sanctuary, Learning4life-GY are working towards embedding of the values of sanctuary throughout the school. For Learning4life-GY in becoming a School of Sanctuary we are dedicated to the following:

  • Providing opportunities to learn about what it means to seek sanctuary and the issues surrounding forced migration
  • To embed concepts of welcome, safety and inclusion by taking action to create a safe and inclusive culture of welcome that benefits everybody, including anyone in our community seeking sanctuary.
  • To share our vision and achievements in doing so.

At Learning4life-GY we are actively engaged in the creation of opportunities for whole community engagement. This includes undertaking of a variety of events that engage trusted adults, families and communities in a wider sense. Examples of one off events include refugee week events, local area representatives engaging with our weekly family learning evenings, collaborative events held externally at our local market to support referrals for external support, and adult learners delivering guest speaker presentations to younger learners.

In addition, we are supportive of our adult learners who have a wealth of experience and academic knowledge to become volunteers within the school whilst they are developing their skills on the English language. Further, we are invested in supporting our adult learners to become an integral part of our local community in sharing their skills.
