Potential for usage in schools: The purpose of this site is to inform and give legal guidance to its teaching staff members. That said, the Fairer Futures Document provides sound advice on developing policies across the school to support LGBT pupils and staff, as well as inculcate good practice across the curriculum. There is also useful information on including parents and carers in this process.
