Bexley’s Mayor, Cllr Geraldine Lucia-Henis attended a special Assembly at Northwood today to formally present our School of Sanctuary award.
We were very pleased to welcome the Mayor and her Consort, along with her driver Paul to our special Assembly. The Mayor congratulated everyone on our commitment to ensuring Northwood is a place of welcome to all, and for becoming the first school in London to have been recognised for the award.
As a Unicef Gold Rights Respecting School, we were thrilled to announce that in May 2019 we were awarded School of Sanctuary status. Our School of Sanctuary journey began with our commitment to being a place of welcome. Northwood is proud to be a place of safety and inclusion to all; we believe that everyone should feel safe, secure and valued.
How we became a School of Sanctuary:
Our plan to move our work forward:
All of our pupils are valued as individuals and are equal to one another. Our school is proud to be helping our pupils, staff and the wider community to understand what it means to be seeking sanctuary.
