A Dundee primary school will be the first in Scotland to receive the LGBT Charter award later this month.
Downfield’s award will be presented by LGBT Youth Scotland at an all-school assembly on Monday June 18.
The event will feature speeches, songs and a 400-person rainbow flag made of coloured cardboard.
A spokesman for LGBT Youth Scotland said: “Downfield Primary School received overwhelming support from parents during their Charter journey, with some writing letters to the head teacher reflecting on the positive impact it had on their children.
“An equality and diversity team of nine pupils took a lead role in reviewing and developing the school’s policies, a process that involved the ideas and opinions of young people every step of the way.”
The LGBT Charter has been awarded to organisations including Barnardo’s Scotland and Scottish Women’s Aid, as well as 18 high schools across the country. It represents a serious and ongoing commitment to improving and evidencing an organisation’s policies and values around LGBTI inclusion.
The spokesman added: “LGBT Youth Scotland provide comprehensive training for staff members.
“We also guide each organisation’s LGBT Charter team through the collation of a folder of evidence that tells the story of their journey and roadmaps the future.”
