Creating LGBT+ Inclusive Schools and Lessons - 22nd October 2021

Course description

This half-day course aims to develop a whole-school ethos of LGBT+ inclusion.


Part One - An introduction to gender, sex and sexuality.

Part Two - Teaching Inclusively: This section looks at how we can engage with young people, free from assumptions about gender, sex and sexuality. LGBT+ issues should not be just standalone RSE lessons, but interwoven into everything that we do. The session will look at how mainstream RSE education can meet the needs of LGBT+ young people, and how we can give our entire student body the skills they need to safeguard themselves, and develop positive attitudes towards their sexual health. 

Part Three - Homophobic, Biphobic, Transphobic (HBT) Bullying: This section will increase your knowledge surrounding LBGT+ young people, their experiences and their needs – as well as offer guidance on what do to if a young person tells you they are LBGT+ and how to tackle HBT language around the school.

Part Four - Exploring strategies and resources for making schools and lessons LGBT+ inclusive for pupils, parents and staff. We will finishing our session with an Inclusion Action Plan writing session for you to take back in to your school setting.
