This guidance aims to help school staff in Scotland’s education authority, grant-aided and independent schools to provide transgender young people with the best possible educational experiences. It is recognised that in order to achieve this, there are a number of considerations which schools and school staff must respond to. These have been reported by schools, education authorities, families and young people. The guidance provides practical advice, information and signposts to age and stage appropriate resources to support schools and their staff, to secure the best possible educational experiences for all their young people, including transgender young people. The guidance may also be used by schools to support young people who identify as non-binary. The guidance is not exhaustive, it is intended as a reference document, and is therefore presented thematically with links to relevant sections and further information throughout. The guidance also signposts to other sources, legislation, guidance and resources throughout. The document aligns with guidance for schools prepared by the Equality and Human Rights Commission. Further information is available in the Additional Resources section.
