LGBT+ Training for Primary School Staff

Presented by Kate Hutchinson from Diversity Role Models

Inspire your pupils to celebrate diversity, challenge bullying and create a safe and welcoming school environment for all

Overview

This half-day course focuses on how to begin to explore LGBT+ issues with your pupils.  You will explore age appropriate ways of discussing these issues, such as by examining diverse families and showing the fundamental similarities that exists between all families, regardless of how they look from the outside.  You will learn how to introduce terms and definitions for lesbian, gay, bisexual, heterosexual and transgender, as well as how to use these words in the correct context.  You will discover how to discuss with older children how homophobic, biphobic and transphobic language can impact on other people and how to challenge this language if heard.

You will also look at:

  • How to adapt policies so they support students and staff, as well as meeting Ofsted/ISI requirements.
  • What HBT language and bullying is and strategies for preventing bullying, and how to embed empathy and kindness.
  • Action planning to create LGBT+ inclusive curriculum and lessons.
  • How to mitigate bias and challenge stereotypes in lessons and displays.
