At Sexpression, we can help your school meet the requirements of the new National RSHE curriculum. Our resources are tailor-made to your school and lesson requirements, accessible to all students and LGBT+ inclusive. Our curriculum is inline with the Department of Education statutory guidance.
The dictionary's aim is to make your lessons more inclusive to LGBT+ students. It is difficult to overstate the positive difference to students’ lives you will make by creating an inclusive classroom. This dictionary is intended for allies rather than LGBT+ people themselves. LGBT+ experience itself is diverse and it is important not to view it as homogenous.

These posters highlight significant LGBT+ figures which can be easily printed out and put up around your school for a more inclusive and accepting learning environment. Some of the figures relate specifically to different subjects, so you may like to display them by subject specific classrooms or spaces.

Lockdown Worksheets by Sexpression Sheffield
With school lessons cancelled for the rest of the term, Sexpression Sheffield were so disappointed that they decided to create worksheets that could be done at home. That teachers could give to students still attending school, or send out to those being homeschooled. As well as Maths, English, and Science, young people are also missing out on vital PSHE classes and we wanted to do our bit to help provide some inclusive and comprehensive sex education in this very strange time. Please use them as starting points to do your own research, stay curious and keep learning! Thanks to Heather, Emily and Olga for making these and Laina and Eddi for the edits!
