Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

School of Sanctuary

What is a School of Sanctuary? 

A School of Sanctuary is a school that is committed to being a safe and welcoming place for all, especially those seeking sanctuary. This could be people whose lives were in danger in their own country, who have troubles at home or are just looking for a space of safety.

A School of Sanctuary is a school that helps its students, staff and 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. It is a school that is proud to be a place of safety and inclusion for all.

Here at Oasis Academy Fir Vale we are extremely proud to be the second school in Sheffield to be named 'School of Sanctuary', we worked really hard on developing an effective induction package for our children and families so everyone feels welcome in our school.
