Provost marks LGBT history month at Caldervale High School

1:10pm - 29 February 2024

Provost Kenneth Duffy has visited Caldervale High School in Airdrie to celebrate LGBT History Month and promote Inclusive Education.

As part of this initiative, the school is embracing the seven LGBT Inclusive Education Learning Themes, aimed at fostering understanding, respect, and inclusivity within the school community.

These learning themes include:

  • Understanding the Equality Act (2010), UNCRC, and human rights.
  • Identifying and combating prejudice, discrimination, and bullying, including homophobia, biphobia, and transphobia.
  • Recognising and challenging gender stereotypes.
  • Celebrating diverse families, including those with LGBT parents and siblings.
  • Embracing diversity and differences.
  • Exploring the history of LGBT equality movements.
  • Highlighting LGBT past and present figures and role models.

We have a 3-year strategic plan in place to ensure that LGBT Inclusive Education is embedded into whole school curriculum across all schools.

Provost Duffy said: "I was delighted to visit the pupils and staff at Caldervale High School to chat about their understanding of LGBT History Month. The staff at the school are doing a fantastic job and it is heartening to see our schools actively fostering understanding, respect, and inclusivity within our communities."
