New Family Social calls for LGBT+ adoptive parents, foster carers and supporters to back inclusive education

5 Sep 2019 11:22 | Anonymous member (Administrator)

From next September, secondary schools in England will have to teach LGBT-inclusive Relationships and Sex Education, and primary schools to teach about ‘different families’ which can include LGBT families.

This education will help reduce bullying, improve LGBT young people’s lives and enable all children and young people to better understand and respect each other. It’s particularly important for the adoptive and foster children of LGBT+ people. One in eight adoptions in England in 2018 were to same-sex couples and these children have often had chaotic starts to their lives. The support of seeing their new families reflected in the classroom is immeasurable.

Local authorities – who oversee education in most schools – need to hear public support for LGBT-inclusive education. Whether you’re a parent, student, adoption or foster care agency worker, or anyone who’s ever been at school – you can now voice your support. Head over to Stonewall’s website to complete a simple form that’ll identify your local education lead and help you get in touch with them.
