True story - 15 year old Jamie Campbell

“I was jealous that all the girls got to go to

prom in these amazing, glamorous

dresses”; I spoke to my mum about it and

she said “well why not wear one too?”

Jamie protected his safety by organising a

film crew to record his experience.

What is School Diversity Week?

Every year at the start of July, schools across the country spring into action

in support of LGBT+ equality. In 2018 over 600,000 students took part.

Students like you will be doing everything from taking part in lessons,

planning and holding fundraisers, making art and music, playing sports,

running campaigns and much more.

This is the first year Nunthorpe Academy will be involved, we will be starting

with making changes to our curriculum and selling rainbow ribbons to raise

awareness, but plan to create a much stronger culture influenced by student

voice with your help.

Our Ofsted Report 27-28 March stated that:

• Our pupils are confident and self-assured.

• Willing to share their views and engage in discussions.

• The vast majority of pupils demonstrate respect and tolerance

for and towards others.

• However, a significant minority do not. These pupils from time

to time spoil the positive atmosphere in the school for others.

Nunthorpe Academy is an all inclusive academy which respects

the rights of all students.

Why are we becoming involved in School Diversity Week?

Page 6: Everybody’s Talking About Jamie ... · National LGBT Survey 2017 68% report that teachers or school staff only ‘sometimes’ or ‘never’ challenge homophobic, biphobic and

We need to:

• Improve the behaviour of those pupils who do not

conform to the high standards in the school

• Provide further opportunities in the curriculum to

educate the significant minority of pupils who

demonstrate negative attitudes to others so that they

have a more informed understanding of differences in

people.

Diversity Week is an ideal spring board to start this

education and change for everyone’s benefit.

So what do we need to do?

What is Diversity?

It means understanding that each individual is

unique, and recognising our individual differences.

These can be along the dimensions of race,

ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socio-

economic status, age, physical abilities, religious

beliefs, political beliefs, or other ideologies.

Whilst School Diversity Week focuses specifically on LBBT+ we need to be aware and consider

our responses to all activities over the next 3 weeks in relation to all of the above!!

Straight attracted to the opposite gender

Lesbian attracted to the same gender (female)

Gay attracted to the same gender (not gender-specific)

Bisexual attracted more than one gender

Why does School

Diversity Week exist?

It’s a chance for all of us to demonstrate

that we’re an accepting school

community which celebrates diversity.

Growing up remains unacceptably tough

for LGBT+ young people with potentially

lifelong impact on achievement and

wellbeing: nearly 9 in 10 hear

discriminatory remarks in school and at

least 1 in 2 have self harmed.

In the news in the last few days:

A brave teenage boy who dressed in this

glamorous pink dress for a school leavers' party

was crowned prom queen.

Xavier Parkins, from Derby, wore a short pink

strapless dress with matching heels to the event

at Pride Park stadium.

Xavier stated his school prom was the time for

him to be who he really was and a time for

personal expression.

This was the first time he had dressed in drag in

front of his friends.

"It was his peers who voted for him which is an

accolade because it takes a lot of courage for

them to come out and support it as well."

What are our plans?

Over the next 3 weeks in form time we’ll be:

• Discussing the statistics shared and what they mean for the individuals and

what we should be doing about it as a community.

• Watching videos from LGBT+ ambassadors who will share their stories and

discuss the impact of their experiences.

• Complete a Diversi-tree activity to celebrate each of us being unique.

• Consider and evaluate our expectations of role models.

• Discuss and consider how we can tackle the use of homophobic language

and attitudes in our academy.

• Consult student voice on what the our next actions should be to remove

intolerance from the academy.
