How are parent/carers involved in the Rainbow Flag Award?
Schools have a duty to teach children and young people about the world they live in. All children and young people live in a world, and go to schools, where LGBT+ people exist. The Rainbow Flag Award recognises that parents and carers are a crucial part of the school community, and their child’s education.
Many parents and carers themselves have often not received any LGBT+ positive education. As such, it is a requirement of the award that lesson resources, information and learning is shared with parents and carers with complete transparency.
