I wanted to update you on the actions we are taking following the complaints regarding the LGBTQ+ session to Year 7/8 during enrichment day.
We invited an external speaker to talk about LGBTQ+. Following the session we are aware that a number of parents, pupils and the local community have taken offense to the comments made in the session. I have instructed an immediate investigation into the matter and will ensure the findings from the investigation are shared to all parents.
I have strongly voiced that the charity commence their own investigation to ensure they are compliant with their own disciplinary policies.
I would like to sincerely apologise on behalf of the academy to anyone who has taken offense from the session. The investigation will provide recommendations to ensure this situation does not arise again in future.
