“Schools For Everyone”

Added: March 24th, 2017

Our Diversity Group has spent the last few months involved in planning a Kirklees-wide conference about how to make our schools more inclusive, Alongside Pennine Learning and students from Greenhead, the Diversity Group came up with ideas and worked to bring together educationalists to share good practice and learn about how to make schools more LGBT+ friendly. The conference was called Schools For Everyone and was hosted by Royds Hall Community School. Groups such as Just Like Us, Stonewall, Mermaids and Locala ran workshops for both students and professionals during the conference and it was amazingly positive experience for everyone.

Many visitors complemented the Royds Hall Diversity Group on the amazing work they have done training teachers, working with outside groups and organizing events like the Diversity Week in July. The visitors from Just Like Us said “We are overawed by the work you are doing.”
