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.

In Your School Bag Wordsearch Puzzle Keywords Settler Starter Cover Lesson Back To School Equipment

In Your School Bag Wordsearch Puzzle Keywords Settler Starter Cover Lesson Back To School Equipment

Wordsearch Puzzle sheet on the theme of ‘In Your School Bag’. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!

KS2/KS3 SEN Religious & Moral Education - Aesop's Fables

KS2/KS3 SEN Religious & Moral Education - Aesop's Fables

Previously delivered to SEN pupils in Year 7 What? Twelve lessons designed to engage individuals or groups with moderate learning difficulties and delivered through story-telling using Religious and/or Moral Education materials that are included to download. Objectives The lesson plans incorporate a progression of academic learning and personal development including self-esteem and confidence. Referring to stories offers layers of education and experience. In its simplest form a story can be interesting, funny, relaxing or just enjoyable. The individual may experience deeper or greater learning either through listening alone or engaging in discussion. Many examples can be found in stories of how people live and the impact their behaviours have. Young people are invited to explore and discuss such examples and reflect on their own behaviour. Young people are then able to choose and make informed decisions regarding their own lives. Where? To be delivered in a comfortable, relaxed environment, free from interruption. For maximum engagement, young people need to feel safe and secure to be able to trust their surroundings and feel acceptable. How? Boundaries of expectations from group members must be discussed, for example; listening to others without interruption, respecting others’ opinions, speaking politely. Allow silence from those seeking only to listen – they are still learning. Any answer (offered with respect) is acceptable and can be used to further discussion. Learning Outcomes Physical; • listening and speaking, reading, fine motor skills, visual assimilation and transformation of the written word from varying distances, Cognitive processes; • awareness, perception, reasoning and judgment. Social; • develop and maintain positive relationships with peers, authority and others. Emotional; • awareness of self and others and how to deal with feelings.

Going for Goals - 'Fill the Sky with you Biggest Dream'

Going for Goals - 'Fill the Sky with you Biggest Dream'

Beautiful colouring/sheet sheet and text from the book to encourage to children to think about what their dreams maybe. Extract from the book reads; ‘Dreams are precious things. They are worth more than silver or gold, yet they are free. Everyone can own a dream, no matter who they are or where they are from. Dreams must be loved, treasured, nurtured and encouraged to grow strong and blossom.’ Text creates a wonderful discussion point on the beauty, and the importance, of having a dream in their life, something they work towards hope for, something that is just for them. This could lead into their own poem about dreams. Share children’s finished work with the author, by getting in touch with me on here, I would love to see their work and maybe share on my website. See other colouring sheets and colouring bundles in other listings. Illustration by Lisa Buckridge, all Images and text Copyright and cannot be reproduced or sold on.
