We are Stonewall Champions!
Stonewall work for equality and justice for lesbians, gay men and bisexuals.
This summer I attended a ‘train the trainer’ course in Leeds, which was so interesting and inspiring that the group of professionals (including head teachers, teaching assistants, learning mentors and class teachers) independently arranged to meet again the same time next year to share our work and experiences. It was fantastic to be able to share the ideas and good practice that Riverside have already established with those schools across the north just beginning this journey.
I have since trained the teaching staff and am in the process of training all staff about Stonewall. We will be particularly focussing upon the use of language in anti-bullying week- more to come on this subject. We will also be celebrating our diverse community in the New Year, by focussing on genius and creativity.
