Safe Schools Coalition Australia provides a range of resources to help school staff create safer and more inclusive environments for same sex attracted, intersex and gender diverse students, school staff and families. Resources include whole school guides for more inclusive policies and practices, posters with anti-bullying messages and an age appropriate teaching and learning resource for use by qualified school staff. Principals and teachers make their own professional judgement on how to use these resources in a school setting.

Our teaching and learning resource, titled All Of Us, is designed for use by school teachers with Years 7 and 8 students. It focuses on helping students to build an awareness and understanding of diversity in the community and to foster empathy for others. All Of Us was developed by a team of professional experts and has been independently reviewed as being age appropriate, educationally sound and aligned to the Australian Curriculum. Schools and teachers make professional judgements about using All Of Us in the context of their school and curriculum planning.It is an Australian Government direction that schools communicate with parents about any plans to use All Of Us.
