Stonewall is the lesbian, gay and bisexual equality charity.
Recent YouGov polling for Stonewall showed that nine in ten secondary school teachers and more than two in five primary school teachers say children and young people, regardless of their sexual orientation, currently experience homophobic bullying, name calling or harassment in their schools. Our Education for All campaign aims to tackle and prevent homophobic bullying and create an inclusive learning environment for all.
Our Schools Champions programme is part of the Education for All campaign and provides tailored support and guidance to primary and secondary schools in challenging homophobic bullying and celebrating difference. We already work with over a third of local authorities, through our Education Champions programme, providing bespoke support and guidance in tackling homophobic bullying in their schools.
We also have many resources to equip teachers with the confidence and skills to tackle this issue.
