Gay group to send ‘training’ pack to all primary schools

A homosexual lobby group is to spend tens of thousands of pounds on sending a “teacher training pack” to every primary school in Britain.

In March it emerged that Stonewall had been sending training packs to some primary schools and one school governor branded the contentious materials as “indoctrination”.

Now the charity has announced that it intends to send a training pack to “every primary school in Britain” after raising more than £50,000 from a sponsored walk.


The training pack which was exposed in March included a DVD containing some highly controversial “best practice” tips from primary teachers.

The DVD showed teachers recommending that boys in primary school should be encouraged to try on dresses or dance with pompoms in the cheerleading team.

And one head teacher even said that pupils should be taught to be resilient to the values of their parents and grandparents.

The training pack also recommends that teachers read homosexual storybooks and act out the roles in school plays.


Stonewall revealed its plans to inundate the nation’s primary schools with its “essential teacher training pack” following a fundraiser at the weekend.

Laura Doughty, the lobby group’s Deputy Chief Executive, said: “Stonewall’s work can make an even greater difference to the lives of all young people around the country, thanks to the success of this year’s Equality Walk.

“Money raised by our supporters at this walk will enable us to send an essential teacher training pack to every primary school in Britain, which will help them make their classes inclusive for children from all families.”


Last year it was revealed that Stonewall was set to send every secondary school in Britain a controversial DVD.

The interactive DVD contained a one hour 45 minute feature film, entitled FIT, which the campaign group claimed would challenge homophobic bullying.

FIT is an adaptation of Stonewall’s highly controversial ‘gay play’ of the same name which toured schools during 2008-9.

But the play, which was targeted at school children aged 11 to 14, prompted protests from concerned parents who said their children were too young to be exposed to its adult themes.
