Our Westleigh family is at its best when everyone is included and difference is celebrated.

 

Nationally, did you know that:

· 45% of LGBT+ students are bullied

· 40% of LGBT+ students aren't taught anything about LGBT+ issues in school

· 40% of bullied LGBT+ students skip school

· 52% of LGBT+ students report that bullying has negatively impacted their future educational plans

By promoting LGBT+, you are providing students with a voice.
