Last month, BBC’s Radio Manchester posted a short video about a lesson that was taught to children at Bewsey Lodge Primary School in Warrington, England.
The video shows the teacher, Sarah Hopson, instructing her class of youngsters to pretend to be a fictional fairytale character named “Prince Henry” and write a love letter to the prince’s servant “Thomas,” telling Thomas why it would be a “brilliant idea” for them to get married.
According to BBC, the school teaches children from an early age about LGBT relationships. The video shows students being taught about same-sex marriage through the writing of a love letter.
“They are going to go out into that world and find this diversity around them and they’ll find that at a young age as well,” Hopson told BBC. “And the more they can be accepting at this age, you are not going to face it further on because the children will be accepting now and will be accepting this diversity around them.”
The primary school, which has about 345 students, prides itself on being LGBT inclusive.
According to BBC, the school has as gender-neutral uniform policy in which students can choose which uniform they want to wear so as not to offend students who might struggle with gender dysphoria and identify as a member of the opposite sex.
Additionally, the school has all age groups take part in lessons about LGBT inclusivity.
Over the summer, Bewsey Lodge became the first school in its region to win the pro-LGBT “Educate and Celebrate” Best Practice Gold Award, which is awarded to schools that tackle “homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying.”
