Diversity Week was an opportunity to give pupils the space to express themselves, a Stansted teacher has said.
Forest Hall School held Diversity Week in conjunction with LGBTQ+ young people's charity Just Like Us.
Sarah Power, enrichment lead at Forest Hall, said: "It was just so nice to see our students in the LGBTQ+ community being themselves completely in a safe space.
"They were doing something for themselves.
"Students have been at home for a lot more time than they ever would be and so have been exposed to just one or two opinions, which has had an affect on them.

She added: "It is important to show we are supportive of all of our students, regardless of their gender, background or sexuality."
Just Like Us is a national charity which campaigns for LGBTQ+-equality policies and education in schools.
