School of Sanctuary
St Regis is proud to be an official School of Sanctuary.
Our school vision guides our practice of creating a culture of welcome and inclusion for all.
We have a multi-cultural school community.
More than forty languages, including dialects are spoken in school.
We enjoy and celebrate all cultures.
We seize every opportunity to share our educational heritage.
We endeavour to continue our efforts and maintain our School of Sanctuary status.
What is a School of Sanctuary?
A school that is committed to being safe and a welcoming place for all. We help students, staff and our wider community understand what it means to be seeking sanctuary and to extend a welcome to everyone as equal valued members of the school community.
As part of our School of Sanctuary initiative, we aim to:
• Promote positive attitudes within schools and their communities around people seeking sanctuary.
• Support schools to take positive steps to be proud of being places of safety and inclusion for all.
• Recognise and celebrate schools that are committed to welcoming and supporting people seeking sanctuary.
