Caldew School recognises that homophobic, bi-phobic and transphobic bullying is widespread in Britain’s schools. The impact can be detrimental to the attendance, attainment and mental health and wellbeing of young people.
Caldew School are Stonewall Champions. Stonewall is a charity supporting lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights. As a school community we are committed to tackling all forms of bullying including homophobic bullying.
We are committed to empowering Staff to tackle homophobic bullying and language as well as educating and supporting our students.
Caldew School celebrates difference and echoes the Stonewall motto, “Acceptance without exception.”
In 2017 we hosted Sir Ian McKellen who spoke to over 300 students and Staff. His message was well received and his visit will be a fond memory for the school community for years to come.
