Norwich Schools of Sanctuary launch invitation – Friday, 16th June


Please join us for the launch of Norwich Schools of Sanctuary on Friday 16th June 2-4pm at Avenue Junior School. See attached invitation.

The event will include contributions from Clive Lewis, Norwich City of Sanctuary, The Common Lot and representatives from the local refugee community. See the attached invitation for more details.

We are building a network of schools in Norfolk committed to being safe, inclusive and welcoming spaces for everyone, especially those such as asylum seekers and refugees searching for sanctuary.

The launch event will bring local organisations, schools and interested individuals together to celebrate the first schools in the county being recognised as Schools of Sanctuary.


This is an opportunity to find out what is already happening, learn more about how to be involved with this initiative and engage with Norwich’s rich history as a city of sanctuary.


We hope that you are able to join us as this nationwide initiative launches in Norfolk!


For safeguarding reasons, the event will be by invitation only. However please feel free to tell interested parties and recommend people or organisations that you think we should invite.


Warmest regards,


Jake Brown
