Junior School

A Day of Welcome Friday 17th June

Tomorrow, we will be marking A Day of Welcome in school. This is a day of solidarity and learning in schools that aims to build a culture of welcome and understanding for refugees and asylum seekers. The celebration is designed to support schools and families in marking Refugee Week (20-24th June) and to send a clear message that for those in need of sanctuary, our communities are welcoming places.

In previous years we have had a non-uniform day to mark the day but we have decided not to do that this year as we have had a number of non-uniform days this year. Children should come to school in their normal uniform or PE kit if they have PE tomorrow. Children in all year groups will be doing some work around A Day of Welcome in their classes.
