SPLAG Wales flies the FFLAG at the NASUWT 2015 Annual Conference in CARDIFF

At a troubled time for teachers across the nation because they are increasingly having to deal with children turning up to school without socks or coats and having missed breakfast, SPLAG Wales and FFLAG attended the NASUWT annual conference at the Millennium Centre, Cardiff for the Whole of the Easter weekend.
 
We were encouraged to see a greater awareness than ever before among many delegates of LGBTQI issues and an increased sensitivity to the suffering brought about by homophobic and transphobic bullying. Many teachers were able to tell us of the programmes and policies that their schools have now introduced to combat these evils.  However, many more were not aware of the seriousness of these issues compared with problems such as poverty or racial prejudice and the team felt that we were able to provide teachers with vital information and personal stories conveying the importance of protecting children at school.
