Finally, a teaching advert that get it right. As my maths teacher once told me "I don't know why people aren't queueing up to be teachers". Best job in the world. https://t.co/1HwxhRtH9A

Supporting LGBT+ Students

Merstham Park School is a fully inclusive school provides a quality education and experience for all its learners. Our Pastoral team, led by our Head of Personalisation, works closely with all parents and students to ensure that appropriate provision is made for every student to understand, receive support and guidance on LGBT+ (lesbian, gay, bi-sexual and transgender) issues. This includes support for individuals who may identify as being LGBT+ or support and education for individuals who are voicing homophobic or anti-LGBT+ views which are affecting other students.

The school will create a culture of respect for the diversity and breadth of the community, enabling everyone to participate in the life of the school. Parents of students with specific needs are encouraged to contact the Designated Safeguarding Lead, Mr Martin Beard, or the students Learning Mentor to talk through their child’s individual needs, should they have any issues, questions or concerns.

Under the equality act 2010 any young person has a right to be addressed as whichever gender they identify as regardless of any diagnosis or medical intervention and irrespective of age.
Staff members have access to relevant e-learning relating to LGBT+ issues via Educare.

LGBT+ at Merstham Park

Our aim is to ‘usualise’ LGBT+ in every part of the school community. We feel very strongly that a whole-school integrated approach will enable staff and students to discuss LGBT+ openly and lead to the development of healthy views, opinions and use of language around LGBT+.

LGBT+ people are recognised and celebrated alongside LGBT+ equality through the ITP and PSHE programme, curriculum, student leadership, staff training, policy and the school environment. Both the ‘Educate & Celebrate’ and ‘Stonewall’ initiatives continue to support us to successfully eradicate homophobia, biphobia and transphobia permanently from our school and to make Merstham Park School officially LGBT+ friendly.
