At Lochardil Primary we are delighted to be recognised as : The First School of Sanctuary in Scotland 

We are a gold rights respecting school with citizenship and sustainability at our heart. We are carrying out staff training and development around themes of health and wellbeing, racial and social justice and equality. We strive to ensure that our curriculum is responsive to contemporary issues that are going on in our world and prove a safe space within our classrooms for learning and discussion to happen. We continue to review our curriculum and campus with the aim of ensuring that every child can see themselves reflected at our school. We have built strong relationships with our parents and wider community and aim to ensure that all voices are heard. 

We support the ‘City of Sanctuary’ vision that the UK will be a welcoming place of safety for all and proud to offer sanctuary to people fleeing violence and persecution. We endorse the City of Sanctuary Charter, and agree to act in accordance with City of Sanctuary values and apply the network principles within our work (as far as our specific context enables us to). We recognise the contribution of refugees and people seeking sanctuary to British society. Sanctuary seekers are welcomed, included and supported within our organisation. We expect our branches or local groups (if any) to support their local City of Sanctuary group if one exists, and will facilitate contact between them and their local City of Sanctuary group. We are willing for our organisation’s name to be added to a list of supporters of City of Sanctuary, linked to our website. We are also willing to be contacted by City of Sanctuary with further ideas for how we can turn our support into practical action and to discuss ways we might work together to promote the vision further.

We are a  Gold Rights Respecting School with our Reaccreditation  for Gold,  awarded in June 2022.  We  continue to learn, promote, understand and live the UNCRC children's  rights, in our school. 

We received our Digital Schools Award in 2020 and our Cyber Resilience and Internet Safety Award in 2021!

We are the proud owners of 7 Eco Schools Green Flags as of 2023!
