Here you go

>This brand new resource provides much needed support for every primary school in the delivery of the objectives outlined in the Equality Act 2010; and in the provision of personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE) for every child.

>It provides teachers with a curriculum that promotes equality for all sections of the community. But more than that, the resource aims to bring children and parents on board from the start so that children leave primary school happy and excited about living in a community full of difference and diversity, whether that difference is through ethnicity, gender, ability, sexual orientation, gender identity, age or religion.

>The resource includes 5 lesson plans for every primary school year group (EYFS- Y6) based upon a selection of 35 picture books. Issues addressed include gender and gender identity, religion, sexual orientation, disability and age.

It's just picture books about people from protected classes being normal people and going about their non-risque day.

>This resource has a place in all primary settings. The messages it contains are crucial if we are to provide the circumstances and environment where equality for all is part of our psyche and culture. The fact that the promotion of emotional intelligence runs through this resource like a stick of rock is something that 'outstanding' schools will be keen to develop further and those that aspire to this status will value as part of the blueprint for its achievement." ― Annie Hargreaves, Retired Senior Education Adviser & former member of IAGTP

Not exactly nefarious.

Here's why

So it's not really 'LGBT lessons.'

Anyone that wants to know what the No Outsiders lessons are about, here you go

>I mean as much as we may agree with the heads politics, politics is what it is. Its written by an activist, is not a neutral education on the law, it selects elements of the EA the author values (LGBT), ignores others (like freedom of religion, or sex) and teaches contested theory (queer theory) as fact.

What a load of tosh

Found Moffat's (the activist teacher) book on amazon. Ages year 1 to 7.

I found part of the description unintentionally funny:

"It has worked incredibly well at Parkfield School because the whole staff team is supporting and promoting the ethos, which gives it authenticity. The books and lesson plans have enabled our teachers and children to talk confidently about equalities and this, building on the relational trust and dialogue we have with our parents, has made the strategy a success." ― Andrew Moffat, Author

I believe is the source material. Ofsted the independent body that reviews schools has said the material is age appropriate and I’m inclined to agree with that assessment till shown otherwise.

It wasn't a 30 minute LGBT lesson. It was an entire curriculum that included this lesson.

Why are you deliberately ignoring this?
