LGBT+ History Month
St Clement Danes School always strives to ensure we have a culture of respect, kindness and inclusion. We hope we provide a warm environment for our students and help students make links to the wider community and understand wider contexts. This month encourages students to consider the history of the LGBT+ community in securing rights, freedoms and recognition as well as giving visibility and voice to those who may not have previously been recognised. Assistant Headteacher, Ms Doyle, showcased a thought-provoking assembly last week highlighting the movement and celebrating it’s history.
Angel, a spokesperson for the SCD LGBT society, talked about the aims of establishing the society at school which was created in 2018, essentially to be a place where students can come to for advice, support and to discuss LGBT related topics.
An optional homework was set where students were asked to write a short, poem, play, story or create a piece of artwork after researching an area of interest from LGBT history. The deadline for submitting this is the 26th February via SMHW.
As always, our students wellbeing and mental health is of the utmost importance for which our pastoral team, led by Deputy Headteacher Mr Marks, are always here to speak with if students ever feel worried.
