How to Transform Your School into an LGBT+ Friendly Place: A Practical Guide for Nursery, Primary and Secondary Teachers
Currently teachers don't receive the training or induction they need to make their school an LGBT+ inclusive environment. This can be seen by the fact that half of schools do not teach anything regarding LGBT+, and only 3% include LGBT+ content in two or more subjects. This book will help transform your school into a safe and inclusive place for all students.
Written with Educate & Celebrate!, an Ofsted and DFE recognised 'Best Practice Award Programme', this book gives teachers, governors and other staff the knowledge, strategies and confidence they need to implement a curriculum that is inclusive for all. Covering the changes to law, including the Equality Act 2010 which requires actively promoting acceptance, what language to use, case studies and much more, it is a must have guide for all schools.
'Written in a very accessible and straightforward way it takes people who work with children of all ages on a simple journey; equipping them with ideas and resources to make their school safe for all their students.
The examples of policies used by actual schools are invaluable and will give schools embarking on the work confidence that they are treading on ground that is well-hoed and has produced fruit.
We at Schools OUT UK welcome the book as a very important easy to use guide that offers its readers plenty of simple, effective tips and places to go to get more information.'
