5. LGBT+ inclusive RSHE

The new statutory guidance on Relationships, Sex and Health Education states that the new subjects should meet the needs of all pupils and that LGBT inclusion should be fully integrated. This is in line with the Equality Act 2010, but the language in the guidance is vague and its not exactly clear what this means in practice.

In this episode we explore why LGBT inclusion matters and how it links to schools wider equalities work. Guests share practical tips on intersectionality, how to talk more inclusively about sex, and young people share their ideas about the kinds of changes they would like to see.
