At Tuxford we are educating pupils and staff about the LGBTQ+ community and why it is important to include everyone within our society. We are raising awareness by celebrating LGBTQ+ history month and pride while promoting LGBTQ+ icons through our curriculum here.
We are working towards The Rainbow Flag Award is a national quality assurance framework for all schools and youth-centred organisations. The award focuses on positive LGBT+, (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, plus other related identities), inclusion and visibility.
The Rainbow Flag Award encourages a whole organisation approach to LGBT+ inclusion, as well as developing strategies to effectively challenge and combat LGBTphobic bullying.
Committing our academy to the Rainbow Flag Award is a commitment to improve the lives of all the young people we work with, as well as the LGBT+ young people in your care, those from LGBT+ families, and LGBT+ staff members.
