The Safe Schools Alliance is a group of concerned parents, grandparents, teachers, governors, and health professionals from more than 30 local education authority areas in the UK. We are from a wide range of backgrounds and have no religious or political affiliation.
Many of our members and 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.
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. We aim to provide clarity on the law and offer evidence-based guidance and support where conflict between protected characteristics arises.
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.
