Educate and Celebrate - how to make your school LGBT friendly

Elly Barnes is currently No:1 on the Independent on Sunday's Pink List for her commitment to LGBT in Education. She has coordinated LGBT History month at Stoke Newington School and in the Hackney Borough since 2005, involving other primary schools, secondary schools, colleges, LGBT organisations and LGBT artists. 

In September 2010 Elly opened her school as a Diversity Training Centre for teachers where she now shares their experience, resources, practical advice and inclusive lesson plans with other teachers through the 'Educate and Celebrate - How to make your school LGBT friendly' program.

The LGBT initiative was recognised by Ofsted as successfully tackling homophobic bullying; the report can be found on their 'Best Practise' website:

Since September 2010 Elly has trained 100's of teachers, educators, support staff, youth groups, organisations and businesses nationally. The feedback from the one day course has been 100% excellent.

Elly now offers training from London and Birmingham venues, for more information please contact her directly on
