    Friday 20th April School of Sanctuary Day of Displacement

     What is Norfolk Welcomes?

    We all know that with the right guidance children can benefit enormously from engaging with complex questions. This idea lies at the heart of Norfolk Welcomes, a progressive new initiative that aims to enable pupils in both primary and secondary schools to think ‘beyond the headlines’ about the global refugee crisis.

    As a School of Sanctuary in Norwich, Notre Dame aims to:

    •  Build understanding of what it means to be seeking sanctuary
    •  Engage with Norfolk’s rich history as a place of sanctuary during RE lessons
    •  Support refugees and asylum seeking communities through prayer and service
