Listed below are some examples of materials and resources designed to help promote LGBT equality in schools. Many of the organisations listed under the 'Useful Links' section will also have materials that can be used in schools.
The NUT has supported a project called 'No Outsiders' which has joined researchers with primary teachers in schools across England. The 'No Outsiders' project website contains information about how primary teachers have used different curriculum strategies to talk about same-sex couples and about different family structures in order to prevent stereotypes about gay and lesbian people, and sexist stereotypes generally.
