  2. Establishing strategies to effectively respond to HBT bullying if it does occur;
  3. Creating an inclusive school environment for LGBT pupils and their families.

The benefits of this for your school are plentiful:

  • A comprehensive development plan for your school’s anti-HBT work
  • Support around creating and embedding policy and practice around tackling HBT Bullying
  • CPD for staff, both teaching and non-teaching so all are equally trained and equipped
  • Access to a range of resources including lesson plans and other supporting documents
  • Access to a dedicated helpline for all staff to answer crucial questions as and when they arise
  • Ongoing support for school staff on tackling HBT Bullying
