Gender issues in boarding schools 

 

Date: March 15, 2018

 

Why should you attend?

“While the average secondary school will have enough lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) students to make up two full classes, 90% of primary and secondary teachers and non-teaching staff report having no training to support LGBT students, according to Stonewall For many teachers, it can be a struggle to know how best to support students, especially when there are no policies and procedures in place.” 

The Guardian

 

This workshop will explore the many diverse issues associated with students that question their sexuality whilst at school and the practical steps that staff can take to best support them. We will also consider what, in a boarding house context, schools need to do to be able to continue to meet their needs.
