Stonewall - Best practice, toolkits and resources
2 April 2020
Stonewall has recently launched several new resources for schools, colleges and settings.
They have updated one of their most popular resources, An introduction to supporting LGBT children and young people which is suitable for all schools, colleges and settings and offers support in creating an LGBT inclusive environment, working with parents and carers, and supporting individual LGBT children and young people in mainstream and specialist settings.
Next steps in LGBT inclusive education: celebrating difference and developing understanding is a brand new resource, aimed at schools, colleges and settings that have already started work on LGBT inclusion and who are looking to really embed the work. This resource includes an extensive policy section, guidance on creating an LGBT inclusive curriculum, support on working with parents and carers, as well as highlighting the importance of ensuring that a wide range of LGBT people are represented and celebrated in the school, college or setting.
Stonewall has been working hard to ensure that we offer schools, colleges and settings the resources they need to support children and young people with SEND as part of their LGBT inclusive approach. As well as the ‘It’s OK’ symbol supported posters, we now also offer easy read information sheets.
