LGBT+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender/Transsexual Plus)

At The East Manchester Academy we are committed to establishing a safe and welcoming environment, where everybody feels comfortable to be themselves.

In addition to having been awarded the Rainbow Flag Award for ‘Outstanding Skilled Teacher’, our pupils have been encouraged to write pledges to stamp out bullying that targets LGBT+ young people. Additionally, our school’s LGBT+ Ambassadors have been working hard to establish a safe and friendly school for our LGBT+ pupils.

Please find some useful websites and information on on this page on whom to contact for advice for LGBT+ young people and their parents/carers.

LGBT+ in the Curriculum

We feel strongly that LGBT+ people should be visible across all curriculum areas rather than only in stand-alone PSHE lessons. This approach allows us to empower our LGBT+ pupils as it allows us to celebrate LGBT+ people in different subject areas. In addition to this, it allows for open discourse between staff and students and it ensures that LGBT+ people are fairly represented in school.

Further to LGBT+ people being represented across the curriculum, pupils have discussed LGBT+ issues and celebrated equality during PSHE sessions in form time and pupils attended our first pride event during our Spring Super Learning Day. The pride event enabled pupils to meet LGBT+ people from different professions and it allowed them to ask questions and address any misconceptions.
