LGBT History Month
2. What can your school do?
Schools can enrich their LGBT history curriculum through study themes and assemblies that reveal, study and celebrate aspects of LGBT histories, such as:
- Assemblies that celebrate a life of a famous LGBT person
- Lessons on the development of LGBT human rights
- Lessons on the roles LGBT people have played in science, e.g. computer science.
This work can make a valuable contribution to your school’s efforts to comply with Ofsted requirements on promoting the wellbeing of pupils, and to implement the Equality Act 2010 in the fostering of good relations between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not.
