Park High Pride Youth Network

What is the Pride Youth Network (PYN)?

The Park High Pride Youth Network (PYN) is an student-led organisation which seeks to challenge homo/bi/transphobic+ language and behaviour and to create a LGBT+ friendly school.

What does the Pride Youth Network do?

We have regular meetings to discuss the different activities students can do to raise awareness, with a shared aim to create a more inclusive, safe school environment where everyone is able to freely express who they are. We have done lots of things in order to try to raise awareness such as:

  • Ran assemblies for all year groups to educate young people
  • Created a display to raise awareness of our services and ideas
  • Fundraised money for LGBT+ charities through an Educate and Celebake cake sale
  • Run a ‘drop in’ every Thursday for any student who needs support
  • Attended the Pride Youth Network conference and received the PYN pioneering award
  • Having an LGBT+ inclusive range of books in the school library
  • A PYN support page on Canvas for students who want to access support and advice
  • Held a coffee morning for parents to find out more about us and inform them on how they can help challenge homo/ bi/ transphobic language at home
  • Led a staff training session on creating a more LGBT+ curriculum.
  • We also have a upcoming PRIDE non-uniform day!

Members can be identified by our rainbow badges.
