LGBT+ at SVC

LGBT+ inclusion at SVC

As part of our commitment to inclusion for all, Soham Village College was awarded the Rainbow Flag Award in April 2021.  This is a national award focusing on LGBT+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, plus other related identities) inclusion and visibility.  The award encourages a whole school approach to ending LGBT+phobic bullying and language.

  • Our teaching and non-teaching staff have received training on how to identify LGBT+ phobic behaviour and appropriate interventions;
  • Gender and sexuality is covered as part of the core KS3 PSHE curriculum
  • There is a vibrant SVC Pride group for LGBT+ students and their allies (Thursdays B, L13)

The Rainbow Flag award consists of 6 individual aspects:” and then continue with the individual awards and when they were achieved.
