A wonderful training experience. Easily the best course I've been on in my career. Rob was an excellent trainer and host. Would recommend this to any teacher in the future. - Headteacher
Thank you so much for the training it was fabulous! I have my action plan in place and am rolling a programme out from January. I came not knowing where to start and now I have a really good idea and lots of confidence to lead it and I know where to come if I get stuck! - Headteacher
Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the training last week - it was the perfect blend of information, sharing ideas and humour. I'd recommend it to anyone. – Teacher
I just wanted to drop you a quick e-mail to thank you for yesterday, it really was exemplary training and left me feeling rather empowered and motivated. The way in which you used personal experience really left me quite inspired and wanting to get involved in more of this work. It really is a great learning project that will assist the future generation in forming their own decisions. - Headteacher
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for your Stonewall course I attended in February, once we have the resources we are ready to go with the training. If I had not been on the course I don't think I would have had the confidence or the skills to do this. Thank you for making the training so relevant and informative. - Deputy Head.
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your help and advice regarding our Stonewall "Different Families, Same Love" work. The assembly ideas were great, the children loved them. We have done all the staff training, had a week focusing on the activities with the children, have got the books and had a parent's drop in. I have also trained all governors and applied for a Stonewall bronze award.
I can't thank you enough for all your help and support, the children were brilliant and it is nice to think that in the mad sat's world we work in, that we may just be making a difference with this work.
Our journey has just begun but I wanted to say thank you for all your help and time! - Deputy Head
Thanks Rob for a fantastic CPD opportunity. I have come back "raving about this course" to my colleagues and I am looking forward to training staff up. Can't wait for the pack of goodies too. Looking forward to sorting out my action plan and the Executive Head is completely on side to work up to Bronze level and beyond. I am already looking at gender neutral toilet locations too! The whole way back on the train, I read through the whole book. - Teacher
Yesterday was fantastic. Not only did I feel like I learnt an awful lot, I came away with an understanding that I did not have before. I went back to school 'buzzing' , with a list as long as my arm of things we can do! So much so that even after a late parents evening, I sat down with my laptop last night and started to move forward with my ideas! - Teacher
Just to say thank you for the resources and for a fantastic day of training yesterday. I will admit that on arrival I didn't think it was a priority for our school at the minute but I am now fired up to launch and can really see the value to all of our pupils and staff :)
I really enjoyed the training - lunch wasn't bad either! - Assistant Head
Insightful, engaging and empowering! - Teacher
Thank you (for the training) It was an amazing and inspirational day. I left feeling so supported in ways to begin to move our school forward in tackling and promoting LGBT issues. I know that we shall be contacting you again soon. - Teacher
I just wanted to say again how much I enjoyed the course yesterday, it was interesting, informative and really made me think. I also have to say I love your delivery style, the day went so fast and you made, what could have been a hard-going day, really enjoyable. I just wanted to say thanks, you've really fired me up to get this going properly in our school. I want to make the difference. - Behaviour Lead
Thank you for last week and for the resources. It was great to meet you and hear about your totally inclusive school. My passion is for inclusivity and it was wonderful to hear someone of similar mind-set talking so positively about changing young people’s minds for the good of everyone. I thought you presented really well; funny, heart-warming and passionate whilst retaining some realism and practical solutions. It was a fab day. We will definitely be having a “Rainbow Day” in the Summer Term! - Headtacher
