Supporting Pupils after a terrorist attack

Teachers can utilise PSHE or Citizenship lessons for discussions that provide timely support for pupils at a difficult and sensitive time, in which case we hope the following guidance will help you:

This guidance is not intended as a script or lesson plan, but to help teachers answer questions, structure discussion and, if appropriate, extend children’s learning and understanding. Teachers should pick out what they feel is relevant for the nature and circumstances of an event, the age and readiness of the children, and their whole-school ethos and values.

10/04/16 The Guardian - 'It's only a phase': What not to say to LGBT pupils if they come out - The way a teacher responds to the moment a student tells them they are gay, and the impact this has on the student. Young people take about three and a half years before they finally decide to come out, according to a survey for LGBT Youth Scotland. Try to avoid saying the wrong thing at this crucial moment of disclosure:

  • Don't say, "I don't have a problem with it"
  • Don't say, "You do know I'm not gay?"
  • Don't tell them "It's only a phase"
  • Don't pretend to know more than you do
  • Don't do anything without consulting the student
