Stories that support diversity and inclusion: 

There are a range of diverse picture and story books that support our teaching and learning. Each of our year groups work on three different books throughout the year! These books are vital in increasing our inclusion and diversity. They are easy to read and cover a range of themes such as race, religion, family make up, gender and disabilities. 


Below you will find a PDF list of a range of books that support diversity and inclusion: 

Support For Parents and Young People:

It can often be difficult for young people to express their identity and to feel accepted by their community, family and peers. If you or somebody you know needs support or advice about gender identity then you'll find a list of websites below that may be of use.

‘The Educate & Celebrate initiative is innovative and visionary’ 

Educate & Celebrate is an Ofsted and DFE recognised Best Practice Programme that gives staff, students, parents and governors the confidence and strategies to implement an LGBT+Inclusive curriculum to successfully eradicate homophobia, biphobia and transphobia from our schools and communities.

Focusing on 5 core areas, the best practice programme invites teachers, students, parents and governors to partake in whole school change through training, policy, curriculum, community and environment giving opportunities to reflect upon their experiences.

Our aim is to ensure that educational establishments and organisations adhere to their statutory duty of LGBT+Inclusion in an accessible, comprehensive and creative way by treating everyone equally and fairly according to the Equality Act 2010.
