Positive reinforcement, through inclusion, can help shape how young people feel about themselves and how they view others. Encountering diversity and inclusivity at school is critical, as it is during these years that we learn most about ourselves and the world around us. 

By embedding a culture of positive messaging and curriculum visibility regarding LGBTQ+ identities and issues, it will not only promote the wellbeing of those who identify as such, but also promote empathy, tolerance, and respect throughout the school population.  

At Byker we celebrate diversity and embrace all of the the things that make us unique.  This is demonstrated in our Core Values and taught through our Relationships and Sex Education curriculum.
