Resources for LGBT History Month

Written by: Pete Henshaw | Published:

A range of free resources have been made available to help primary and secondary schools mark LGBT History Month this February.

They have been created and published by charity, the Proud Trust, and are available to download.

Covering all key stages, the Rainbow Flag Award Classroom is a free set of LGBT+ inclusive lesson plans and resources that link to the national curriculum.

Lessons have been developed across all key stages and all curriculum areas. The resources aim to support LGBT+ awareness across the curriculum, rather than concentrating on PSHE education or programmes.

Also available are secondary-specific resources developed by educational professionals from The Proud Trust in conjunction with Schools Out UK. The LGBT+ History Month pack is focused around this year’s theme of Body, Mind and Spirit and will allow pupils to discover concepts that they may not have previously linked to LGBT+ people.

Rachel Williams, training manager at the Proud Trust, said: “With another national lockdown in place, we think the pack could be a very useful tool for parents too who are home schooling and searching for free, engaging and inclusive content developed to educational standards. And the best thing is that this is just one of the free resources available.

“Often, we find that schools want to provide LGBT+ inclusive lessons within the curriculum yet staff don’t really know how to approach it within subjects outside of those that focus on personal and social development – that’s why we created The Rainbow Flag Award Classroom as a further free resource to weave LGBT+ awareness into the everyday and further help to reduce prejudice through education.”
