February is LGBT+ History Month

This week marks the start of LGBT+ History Month which was founded in the UK in 2004 by Sue Sanders and Paul Patrick. Sue Sanders has said “Given that schools had already been doing Black History Month, we thought maybe we should launch a LGBT+ History Month. Schools were not mentioning LGBT+ people at all and homophobia in schools was rife. So it was about celebrating after years of being victims.”

Each week we will share slides in the student bulletin with information about important moments in LGBTQ+ history and iconic people. We hope it promotes positive discussion amongst our young people and helps us continue to move forward in making sure everyone feels safe and respected within our school community and the communities in which they live. If you or your child would like more information, advice or support about LGBTQ+ issues, please have a look at the following websites:
