What is School Diversity Week?

Every June, Just Like Us runs School Diversity Week. The event is a celebration of LGBT+ equality in primary and secondary schools across the UK.

As part of this, Just Like Us has created more than 100 free, LGBT+ inclusive resources for use in schools. These include lesson plans, worksheets, assembly ideas, story time discussions and presentations. Plus, there is a Rainbow Friday non-uniform day, fundraising for Just Like Us.

More than 6,000 UK schools are signed up to take part in School Diversity Week. Signing up means you will get free access to LGBT+ inclusive resources across all key stages and key subjects.

Why celebrate School Diversity Week?

Independent research has found that when LGBT+ young people grow up in supportive, inclusive environments at home and at school, this results in hugely positive outcomes into young adulthood.

Research has also shown that positive messaging about being LGBT+ in schools improves the wellbeing of all pupils, whether or not they are LGBT+.

By signing up for School Diversity Week, you’ll gain access to our free LGBT+ inclusive resources. You’ll be joining thousands of other schools celebrating across the UK.
