This comprehensive resource is designed to help staff in primary and secondary schools gain the confidence, knowledge and tools to create a safer learning environment for LGBT+ young people and their families.
The Inspiring Equality in Education resource is funded by the Department for Education and Government Equalities Office to help address the finding that schools often lack confidence and feel under-resourced to deal effectively with homophobic, biphobic or transphobic bullying. The Anti-Bullying Alliance, Jan Lever Group and Off the Record Bristol have all contributed to the resource, which has also been awarded the PSHE Association Quality Mark.
The resource includes:
- 7 primary school lesson plans covering celebrating difference, families, relationships and gender awareness
- 10 secondary school lesson plans on prejudice-based language, bullying, lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans media representation, prejudice, gender and social media
- guidance on what the law says, teaching about LGBT+ identities and relationships, handling disclosures, staff training, anti-bullying policies and one-to-one support for LGBT+ young people.
