FAQs for Parents/Carers on School Diversity Week

What is School Diversity Week?

School Diversity Week is the national celebration of lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans (LGBT+) equality in education. Organised by the charity Just Like Us (justlikeus.org) and launched with the support of the Department for Education, the week empowers pupils and school staff to take responsibility for tackling homophobic, biphobic and transphobic (HBT) bullying. In 2021, schools representing over two million pupils and school staff are signed up to take part.
