We are now gearing up for LGBT+ History Month 2021!

The theme for next February is ‘Body, Mind, Spirit’ and like the last few years, is linked to a National Curriculum subject. We are visiting PHSE for a second time.

FREE resources are available, and we will be adding many more so visit both the general resources and the specific 2021 tabs.

Subscribe for FREE to OUTburst, our bulletin, for reports of events the Schools OUT UK committee attend.

Follow LGBT+ History Month on Facebook to find podcasts, webinars and videos exploring our LGBT+ness.

Given our current pandemic situation we can’t take anything for granted, so we are exploring how to be flexible and thinking of new ways of communicating. Keep visiting the website and our social media.

The Proud Trust work book that supports the 2020 theme is here. They will publish the 2021 version in due course.

In the meantime, we hope you keep safe.

RECLAIMING RADICAL IDEAS IN SCHOOLS
Preparing Young Children for Life in Modern Britain

By Andrew Moffat

Given the controversy over Andrew’s work in Parkview School I thought it was wise for Schools OUT UK to review his books and explore his work. Andrew and I have known each other for many years as I was a consultant on the original No Outsiders project started by Dr. Elizabeth Atkins in 2006.

Andrew has drawn heavily on their original project that was aimed solely at challenging homophobia and widened it to, as we say in Schools OUT UK, educate out prejudice, and has designed the project to enable his students and parents to consider all the protected characteristics:

· age

· gender reassignment

· being married or in a civil partnership · being pregnant or on maternity leave · disability

· race including colour, nationality, ethnic or national origin

· religion or belief

· sex and

· sexual orientation.
