Who we are
Safe Schools Alliance UK is a grassroots organisation which campaigns to uphold child safeguarding in schools.
SSAUK is led by a group of volunteers with diverse backgrounds including teaching, nursing and child safeguarding. We have no religious or political affiliation.
We represent parents, grandparents, teachers, governors, and health professionals from more than 30 local education authority areas in the UK. Many of our supporters are lesbian, gay or bisexual. Many are parents, carers or grandparents of LGB or trans-identifying young people. This motivates us to ensure that schools keep every child safe and are inclusive of all.
- The adoption of gender identity ideology in schools and its impact on the lives of children, especially girls.
- The use by schools of RSE materials which sexualise children and promote porn and other harmful sexual practices.
SSA UK works with schools and educators to ensure that school policies meet the safeguarding needs of all students, and that they do this whilst taking into account the protected characteristics of the Equality Act 2010.
The physical, mental and emotional well-being of children is more important to us than anything else. To achieve this, we believe a collaborative approach with schools is essential. This is because it has the best chance of ensuring a safe and supportive environment for children.
Our Mission Statement
To empower parents, teachers and other stakeholders to hold their schools to account.
To provide clarity on the law and offer evidence-based guidance and support where conflict between protected characteristics arises.
To empower school leaders to reject RSE materials that go against child safeguarding principles.
To pressurise the Department for Education to provide adequate guidance for schools so that they can fulfil their legal obligation to ensure children receive a balanced and non-political education in all areas.
We call upon the DfE to:
- Remove the reference to ‘gender identity’ as if it were fact from the statutory RSE guidance.
- Remove the requirement to teach gender identity from the primary curriculum.
- Include gender-critical thought and discuss it as part of RSE in the Secondary curriculum.
What We Do
We provide clarity on the law and offer evidence-based guidance and support. See our popular factsheets and letter templates.
We speak to MPs and peers who are concerned about child safeguarding. We work with government departments and teaching organisations.
We have supported schoolgirls who took legal action against Oxfordshire County Council and the Crown Prosecution Service over their unfair trans guidance.
