This assembly explores some of differences that exist within the LGBT community. It draws on what we know of young trans people's experiences in schools in the UK today, as shown in the 2017 School Report, and seeks to empower schools to tackle this type of bullying head on. It also aims to dispel common myths and misconceptions.
A Process Guide for Staff to Implement in School - a whole school approach is where every person who is part of a school, irrespective of their position, is not only aware of the school's approach to tackling bullying, but participates in its deliver. All attempts to adopt a whole school approach would require participation and involvement from every member of the school community; everybody has a role to play.

Work has been initiated within the county to improve the provision for responding to bullying within our educational settings. By utilising the data from the Gloucestershire Online Pupil Survey, individual schools have used this information to inform the construction of an effective anti-bullying policy, working alongside the safeguarding measures in place within the school.
Some schools have been involved with the Healthy Schools Plus work and have chosen to tackle bullying as part of their intervention work to increase the awareness of bullying within the school.
Sadly, bullying WILL happen in schools but we must ensure that all children and young people within our county gain confidence to report these incidences so that they can be dealt with promptly and effectively by schools. Certainly since 2006, the Gloucestershire Online Pupil Survey has shown throughout the county bullying has decreased in schools and the pupils report their confidence in how schools are dealing with bullying is increasing.
Schools in the county may choose to gain accreditation of Anti-bullying through the Anti Bullying Alliance. This is a whole-school approach to an accreditation process, increasing the awareness of bullying for staff and pupils. This should improve the handling of incidents and reduce their occurrence.
Improved practice reduces the number of incidents of bullying and increases the effectiveness of handling incidents.
PRIMARY LESSON PLAN
This lesson plan has been designed to support you in your discussion of gender, gender stereotyping and gender identity with your pupils. The story, "Are you a boy or are you a girl?" lends itself to discussions of what it might mean to question your gender, and help support pupils who are gender variant and their classmates.
Based on the book 'Are you a boy or are you a girl?' by Sarah Savage and Fox Fisher.

The theme: Change Starts With Us
We have worked with over 1,000 children and young people to decide the theme for this year. The theme aims are as follows:
Small change. Big difference.
Whether it is verbal, physical, online or in-person, bullying has a significant impact on a child’s life well in to adulthood. By making small, simple changes, we can break this cycle and create a safe environment for everyone. Because together, we can challenge bullying. Change starts with a conversation. It starts with checking in. It starts with work together.
Change starts here.
Change starts now.
Change starts with us.
This year the goal is to inform schools and settings, children and young people, parents and carers to know that it takes a collective responsibility to stop bullying. We are excited for this campaign as we want to create empowering, positive messages addressing the fact that when it comes to bullying CHANGE STARTS WITH US!
