LGBT+ Advice & Support
As part of our commitment to providing 'A fantastic future for all', we believe everybody at our school should feel comfortable enough to be themselves.
This year, we are working towards The Rainbow Flag Award.
The Rainbow Flag Award is a national quality framework for all schools and colleges focusing on LGBT+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, plus other related identities) inclusion and visibility. This organisation-wide approach allows us to ensure full LGBT+ inclusion is achieved, as well as tackling instances of LGBT-phobic bullying.
LGBT+ across the curriculum
Year 8 planning their biggest project to date... modern day Pantomime! Students were discussing how to include Manchester’s cultural diversity, relevant social issues in current headlines and making sure they demonstrate gender equality. We love challenging the stereotype â¤ï¸ pic.twitter.com/XE3eCZJNWK— Miss Reynolds
LGBT+ History Month
In February, we celebrate LGBT+ history month. This year, each form will be given a historical LGBT+ event which happened in Manchester. Students will be given an opportunity to learn more about the context of that event and the outcomes afterwards. We will also be having our first MEA Central Pride event on Friday 15th February where people from all sectors will talk about LGBT+ inclusion in their area. Students will be able to ask questions and address any misconceptions that they have.
If you have any further questions around our commitment to LGBT+ inclusion at Central, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Adson (firstname.lastname@example.org).
