The Labour Party leader Ed Miliband has been in Sussex today to see a school's ground-breaking work to tackle homophobic bullying. Blatchington Mill in Hove has appointed some of its students as "equality commissioners" to challenge prejudice.
The school says it's vital that all youngsters feel safe and valued, or their education can be seriously affected.
Malcolm Shaw has been speaking to Ed Milliband, Stephen Murtagh, a victim of homophobic bullying, Equality Commissioners Rosie Bradley and Joshua Drabble and Deputy Headteacher Nick Wergan.
