Brief Summary

Article on The Guardian's Teacher Network exploring how teachers can support transgender students.

Extract from article

While the average secondary school will have enough lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) students to make up two full classes, 90% of primary and secondary teachers and non-teaching staff report having had no training to support LGBT students, according to Stonewall. For many teachers, it can be a struggle to know how best to support students, especially when there are no policies and procedures in place.

Teachers can use these relatively simple techniques to ensure a basic level of inclusion and care for transgender students in their classroom.
