Shaun Dellenty -
Inclusion for All: Understanding Homophobic Bullying
Shaun Dellenty is the Deputy Head Teacher of Alfred Salter Primary School in London, a school widely celebrated for its inclusive practice. In addition Shaun has worked previously as a seconded improving schools consultant and he now serves as a part time equalities consultant, in addition to his full time role as a school leader. A survivor of sustained homophobic bullying as a child (which resulted in him walking out of state education back in 1987) Shaun remained ‘closeted’ as a teacher until 2009. In November 2009 Shaun’s own school found through pupil voice that 75% pupils within school were being subjected to daily homophobic language or abuse or were hearing the word ‘gay’ being used as a pejorative term. In response to this data Shaun ‘came out’ to his whole school community and founded 'Inclusion For All', a small not for profit charitable organization which aims to effect organizational change in communities, schools, faith schools and other educational contexts. Inclusion for All aims to inspire and empower individuals and organizations to pro-actively prevent prejudicial language and bullying based upon sexual orientation, transgender, heritage or individual identity.
