Transgender guidance for schools

Secondary

Detailed guidance for schools on support and inclusion for transgender students.

This guidance aims to embed good practice on trans matters in schools and colleges by:

  • Ensuring teachers and governors are dealing with trans matters inclusively; benefiting from professional advice and guidance
  • Promoting inclusion for all within education by improving services for trans children and students
  • Empowering supporters of trans pupils and students by providing a practical guidance to their experiences

This guidance informs schools and colleges so that they can support, inform, protect and enable pupils and students questioning their gender identity to achieve their full potential whilst in education.
