 A Catholic primary school has invited the gay rights group Stonewall to give staff lessons to prevent “homophobic bullying”.

Sarah Crouch, the head teacher at St Mary’s Catholic Primary School in Wimbledon, south London, invited Stonewall, the gay rights pressure group, into the school to teach staff how to educate children in sexual equality.

The training day went ahead with the consent of all but one of the governors.

Miss Crouch said she called the campaign group into St Mary’s simply to train staff “on how to tackle homophobic language and bullying”.

She said: “As a school, and as Catholics, we are opposed to prejudice of any kind and felt it was important to tackle the issue of homophobic language and bullying.

“The training was very successful and we feel confident that if any incidents of this kind of language occurs our staff have the means to address it appropriately.”
