Letter to Parents and Carers

Dear Parents and Carers,

At Upton-by-Chester High School, our curriculum has been designed to teach the learners to celebrate difference and diversity, and respect is central to our core values.

February is LGBT history month and I have a number of resources I would like to share with you.


Programmes and documentaries which celebrate the LGBT community

The Best of Sport: LGBT history month

Newsround - 12 LGBT+ icons from history you should know about

National Geographic:

Various articles to support the LGBTQ community

Monuments that honour LGBTQ history around the world

Further resources and helpful information can be found on our school website by clicking on the following link: LGBT+.

As a school, we are working towards achieving the Rainbow Flag award with the Proud Trust. For more information about this click on the following link:

We recently achieved our skilled teacher award for the second time. We have a vibrant LGBT+ club which meets in school every Wednesday evening and is open to all year groups. Members of staff who are available to discuss anything to do with the LGBT community wear rainbow lanyards and are there to support all learners.

If you require support, information or guidance with regards to LGBT history month please do not hesitate to contact me.

Best wishes,

Mr Keegan
