Springwest prepares to celebrate LGBT+ History Month in February!
Staff and students at Springwest Academy are preparing to celebrate LGBT+ History Month in February 2021.
Since 2011, History Month has had a National Curriculum focused theme. Relating to the PSHE curriculum, the theme this year of Body, Mind and Spirit provides us with opportunities to explore the complexities of who we are and what we can aspire to be. The launch took place in November 2020 and can be seen here alongside videos about the five faces for 2021 – historical figures who have helped to shaped a more positive future for LGBT+ people: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCT4nBN8y9zvWmW0kqZrSthQ/videos
Stay tuned for updates about our events and activities including a performing arts workshop, staff reading a wonderful book for students, as well as our fabulous Rainbow Friday on the 12th February 2021.
Springwest Academy is a Stonewall School Champion school and is committed to improving the lives of LGBT+ young people through positive education; celebrating LGBT+ people in all their diversity in order to educate out prejudice and discrimination.
