We’re absolutely delighted that you’re joining the Just Like Us team, schools and colleges across the UK in championing lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans (LGBT+) equality during School Diversity Week 2020.
We’ve created this toolkit with help from school staff across the country to make celebrating School Diversity Week as easy as possible. It includes:
We’ve been inspired to hear about what so many schools already have planned and we’re looking forward to hearing from many more of you. Remember: if you can’t hold School Diversity Week during 22-26 June, you can still take part by celebrating the week another time - just make sure to tell us what you have planned.
We’d love your feedback on how we can improve this toolkit and make next year’s week even more successful.
Thank you for celebrating School Diversity Week and championing LGBT+ equality at your school. LGBT+ young people repeatedly tell us what a difference it would have made if their schools had done more to support them growing up. There will be many pupils for whom this week will be a turning point, the moment when they see that being LGBT+ won’t get in the way of them having an awesome life, and that being themselves will help them realise their potential and their dreams.
Good luck and stay in touch!
The Just Like Us team
