(TAG A TEACHER!) Last week the Education Secretary published a new draft government guide on RSE (Relationship and Sex Education) which will be compulsory for ALL Schools across the UK.
It has been updated to be inclusive of same-sex relationships and gender identity, as well as staying safe online.
The draft states “By the end of primary school, pupils should know that others’ families, either in school or in the wider world, sometimes look different from their family, but that they should respect those differences and know that other children’s families are also characterized by love and care for them.” After this news, here at Pop'n'Olly, we are super pleased to hear this and hope that we can offer our services to any schools that may be NEW (or experienced!) to LGBT+ education at Primary education level.
Our workshops are available for schools and educational establishments from September 2018, see attachment for info, testimonials and the reasons why LGBT+ education is crucial.
Making sure your school is an LGBT+ friendly place is a legal requirement and Ofsted inspectors will be assessing how well schools adhere to the 2010 Equality Act.
