INSIDE OUT RESOURCE
Dear Parents,

In conjunction with our sexuality education (Family Planning) programme, we are also going to incorporate the Inside Out (we all belong) programme.
This covers Gender, transgender, diversity and difference, bullying, homophobia and transphobia as well as respect and responsibility.
I have attached the link to this email as well as why its important for children to be aware of these issues.  Please have a look.

WHY IT’S IMPORTANT

Inside Out is a set of freely available video-based teaching resources which aim to decrease homophobic and transphobic bullying by:

  • Reducing homophobia and transphobia
  • Using a norm-challenging pedagogical approach to cultivate critical thinking, perspective-taking and empathy
  • Helping people understand key concepts and terms related to young people with diverse sex, gender and sexual identities
  • Identifying what bullying is, and what homophobic and transphobic bullying behaviour may look like
  • Exploring how people can better support intersex, gender diverse and sexuality diverse young people
  • Supporting positive social behaviour in children and young people, as peers of intersex, gender diverse and sexuality diverse young people

 

Inside Out meets key NZ Curriculum and Health Curriculum objectives, including positive relating to others, fostering healthy communities, critical thinking, participating and contributing, sexual health and development, interpersonal skills and attitudes, stereotypes and managing self. (See the Pedagogy Guide included in the Resource Pack for more information on curriculum objectives).

 

Inside Out is ultimately about fostering positive relating to others, especially in terms of sex, gender and sexual diversity.

This will be covered once a week – please let me know if you would like your child to be taken out of these sessions.

Many Thanks
