What is School Diversity Week?

School Diversity Week is the UK-wide celebration of LGBT+ equality in primary and secondary schools. It’s run by Just Like Us and you can sign up now to take part.

By signing up, school staff get access to free, ready-to-go resources provided by Just Like Us so that they can easily start discussions about LGBT+ topics with their pupils.

The free resources cover EYFS-KS5 as well as all key subject areas – including posters, lesson plans, assemblies, form time activities and video resources. Just Like Us also provides specific resources for faith schools, SEND schools, and bilingual resources in Welsh and English.

School staff at almost 7,000 schools are signed up to take part this 24-28 June.

Schools across the UK will be getting involved in a range of activities from LGBT+ inclusive lessons, to storytime activities, to assemblies and school talks from Just Like Us, to fundraisers with Rainbow Ribbons and a Rainbow Friday dress-up day.
