This set of resources builds on the success of our book, Alien Nation.
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.
Supplied as a five-lesson pack, along with the Alien Nation book (and other resources), Trans Positive Education for Primary Schools is a fun exploration of different kinds of people and identities, and
Can be delivered as a half-term block as part of your PSHE programme;
Can be linked to other curriculum areas, including literacy, drama, British Values and Citizenship and RSE;
Helps you meet your statutory requirements to deliver LGBT+ inclusive RSE;
Helps you meet the needs of all students, including those that are LGBT+, and those from LGBT+ families, in line with the Equality Act (2010) and Ofsted obligations;
Is fun and easy to deliver!
Trans Positive Education for Primary Schools is available to buy now through our shop.
Please note that Trans Positive Education for Primary Schools only enables a set of conversations about trans and non-binary lives. For a separate, important, and fun, exploration of lesbian, gay and bisexual lives and people, a different resource is available. See our Happily Ever After resources.
