LGBT Safe and Supportive School’s Toolkit

The LGBT Safe and Supportive School’s ‘Toolkit’ for is for Post-Primary staff who want to create safe and supportive schools that are fully inclusive of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) young people. The toolkit outlines a Whole-School Community model, with 6 key action areas, that can effectively be implemented through strong school leadership and senior management support.  The rationale for each key action area is explained in the toolkit as well as suggestions of ‘what your school can do’.

A Rapid Assessment Tool has been created to accompany the toolkit, which allows schools to self-evaluate where they are at in relation to each key action area.  The Rapid Assessment Tool is a good starting point for schools wanting to engage in this work. 

The model has been piloted and evaluated in two Donegal schools.  See www.belongto.org for the full report including research findings.

For more information on implementing the toolkit please contact Belong To (01 670 6223 Monday - Friday from 9am - 1pm & 2pm - 5pm)
