Framing Inclusion Through Rights has been developed by Rights Respecting School and Stonewall School Champions to help schools who want to create a culture that supports students who are lesbian, gay, bi and transgender (LGBT) or come from LGBT families.
One of the simplest ways to do this is to create a culture that celebrates the differences of everyone, and actively focuses on inclusion. UNICEF UK believes that in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child schools have an authoritative and neutral starting point to base inclusion work upon.
This resource is designed for use in school during a CPD session or INSET session. It’s a participatory session which should last between one and a half and three hours, depending on the time you allot for the exercises and any discussions that may arise.
The learning outcomes of this resource are:
- Understanding what relationships and sex education requirements are in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
- Understand what the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child has to say in relation to inclusion, diversity and LGBT teaching and learning.
- Take a first step towards creating an action plan for inclusion in your school.
