Trans Inclusion Schools Toolkit 2017
Trans Inclusion Schools Toolkit, 2017
We want all children and young people in Brighton & Hove schools to feel safe and be happy. Learning can only take place when young people feel that their needs are being met and this toolkit provides information and guidance to schools and colleges in Brighton & Hove on how to effectively support trans, non-binary and gender questioning pupils and students and to prevent transphobia. The toolkit also encourages the development of whole school communities which actively challenge all forms of gender stereotyping, sexism, homophobia and biphobia.
This toolkit was first published in 2014 and disseminated to Brighton & Hove educational settings who found it useful to inform practice and to support trans and gender questioning pupils and students in their communities. We know from feedback from trans children and young people that many of them feel well supported in Brighton & Hove educational settings. The first edition also received positive feedback from other local authorities (including those overseas) and schools who have used it as a basis of similar policies or guidance for their contexts.
Since 2014 there has been an increase in children and young people coming out as trans and non-binary and an increase in different ways that young people self-identify in terms of gender. There has been a lot of discussion in the media and wider about how best to support trans and gender questioning children and young people and if and how to raise awareness of gender identity across the whole community. This second edition of the toolkit, written by the council and Allsorts Youth Project seeks therefore to provide additional support around these issues and includes further content on:
Auditing and reviewing the whole school environment
Transfer from primary to secondary school
Non-binary children and young people
