Inclusive Education

Conference believes that schools across Scotland must provide inclusive, high quality sex and relationships education for our children and young people.


Conference notes that many young people today are aware of sex and relationship issues at increasingly early ages, and believes that it is more important than ever to promise progressive and inclusive education which equips young people with appropriate information about issues such as sexual health, trust in relationships and consent. Conference further notes the deeply concerning presence of homophobia and transphobia in Scotland’s Schools, and welcomes the contribution of the Time for Inclusive Education (TIE) campaign in raising awareness around these issues.


Conference therefore considers that the education system in Scotland must be fully inclusive of LGBTI+ identities and relationships in order to promote a safe, equal, accepting environment for all of Scotland’s youth people.
