Leicestershire County Council ranks 5th in Stonewall Education Equality Index!

Leicestershire County Council ranks 5th in Stonewall Education Equality Index!

Posted: Thu, 20 Jul 2017 10:17

We are delighted to have climbed the Stonewall Education Index rankings once again this year, coming 5th out of all Local Authorities taking part in the Index this year.

Our success is a reflection of the work Leicestershire County Council does to prevent and tackle homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying across all school and youth settings.

We will continue this important work and hopefully will climb the ladder again next year - watch this space!
