Many primary schools are doing amazing work around challenging gender stereotypes. What is missing, often, is then a further set of conversations and lessons about the existence of trans and non-binary people.
The young people that we work with in our youth groups consistently tell us, that at no point during their growing up, were trans and non-binary identities ever visible, ever discussed. So what they lacked was the language and terminology to help them understand who they are.
Trans and non-binary children and young people exist in our world, exist in our primary schools, so it is important that they’re represented, with positive visibility of others like them.
This five lesson pack, which has been developed in collaboration with Hartford Primary School, is fully resourced and easy to deliver, perhaps over a half term PSHE programme. Alongside the five lesson booklet, this pack contains an Alien Nation book, a set of the Alien Nation posters and a Trans Pride flag, and is available to buy through our shop.
