LGBT+ Questions for Parents

Our school recognises that all children grow up in a variety of families and as a wide variety of personal identities. At school we do not tolerate discrimination towards anyone who wishes to identify themself as different from their birth identity.

 

If you think your child may have questions over their own identity as a boy or girl, we are able to signpost you to useful websites that may be able to offer support. In addition we ask you to come and talk to us, so that we can support your child while in primary school as well as offer positive transition to secondary school.

 

In addition please follow the links below in order to find out more information so that you can offer to support and positive self-esteem to your child.
