School diversity week is an annual initiative that empowers teachers and students across the country to tackle homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying. Different activities are organised that celebrate LGBT+ and equality in education. This year, we also focused on the Black Lives Matter movement and how racism continues to manifest itself across all aspects of human life. Within UK LGBT+ communities, black people still have to face unjust treatment in most mainstream LGBT+ spaces. Black LGBT+ people will still have their voices ignored, or spoken over. Black trans people continue to confront more than most - socially, economically and through legislation which fails to protect them. St Martin's community stands together for equality and justice for all.
We hope you enjoy watching the Diversity video with contributions from staff at St Martins'. Please also visit 'Just Like Us' to find out more about Diversity in Schools.
