LGBT+ in the Curriculum
We feel strongly that LGBT+ people should be visible across all curriculum areas rather than only in stand-alone 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 sessions in form time and pupils through the PSHRE programme. This provides students with the opportunity to ask questions and address any misconceptions.
At WRHS, we have a strictly zero tolerance approach to HBT (homophobic, biphobic and transphobic) bullying. We treat HBT bullying extremely seriously and as a result, there will be appropriate consequences for HBT bullying against LGBT+ pupils, staff or families in the local community.
If students experience HBT bullying, they can report it anonymously via one of the following ways:
- Complete the anti-bullying form on Frog
- Complete an antibullying referral form found outside each year office
- Speak to one of the anti-bullying ambassadors at lunch time
- Speak to any member of the Pastoral Team
