Supporting trans-identified students

Supporting trans-identified students

**Introduction ** This guidance has been developed by Transgender Trend in partnership with teachers and child welfare staff to help primary and secondary school professionals navigate the challenges raised by new transgender schools guidelines and to help teachers develop the confidence to manage these issues in day-to-day school life, so that all children feel supported and safe The number of children who identify as transgender has risen exponentially over the last few years and this has left schools unprepared for the complex issues which may arise in an area in which most teachers will have had no previous professional experience. Advice given by transgender organisations is focused upon the transgender individual and may not look at the holistic duty of the school community as a whole. The aim of Transgender Trend is to clarify the information contained within current schools resources and equip teachers to feel confident in their own professional judgement in critically appraising such materials. Transgender Trend provides research-based evidence and alternative strategies which will help teachers to best support not only the child who identifies as transgender but all children who defy gender and sex-role stereotypes. To enable teachers to confidently support all students in their learning and realisation of their potential this guidance examines the areas of ‘transgender rights’ which may conflict with the rights of other students and encourage teachers towards workable and creative solutions in line with the Equality Act and Public Sector Equality Duty guidance for schools.

Sports Relief 2018 - PowerPoint Presentation - Assembly - In Class

Sports Relief 2018 - PowerPoint Presentation - Assembly - In Class

Comic Relief 2018 PowerPoint Presentation Could be used for an assembly or in class. There are links to a video on YouTube - this will only work if you have internet connection and YouTube is not blocked within your organisation. It is linked into the presentation so you shouldn’t have you close the presentation to show it. It contains notes on the presentation which are on one side of A4 so you don’t need to keep looking at the screen to see what is going to come up next. I have saved it in two versions on PowerPoint, if you have an older version. Check out my other KS2 resources and planning here

Exploring Stereotyped Bodies - Addressing gender stereotypes from primary to adult age range

Exploring Stereotyped Bodies - Addressing gender stereotypes from primary to adult age range

This activity explores how gender stereotypes are created and maintained. It is suitable for primary to adults (Have trialled it with all) as differentiation is by outcome. The basic premise is to draw and write all the stereotypes of boys/men in one body and all the stereotypes of girls/women in another body. Then list where the messages come from about how the two bodies should be down the centre between the two bodies. Draw arrows to show the pressure on the bodies. around the outside of the bodies we also list the names or situations that can occur for bodies that do not follow the rules. The question is posed “what is the easiest thing for bodies to do- if to step outside their stereotyped body leads to abuse”. The answer is of course remain in our stereotyped bodies- reinforcing them for ourselves and everyone around us. Discussion then explores how we can create spaces for us all to challenge stereotypes and live free from the constraints of stereotypes.
