  6. The education equality curriculum guide: supporting teachers in tackling homophobia in school

    This guide focuses predominantly on issues of sexual orientation and homophobia. These lessons are designed for use at Key Stage 3. They can be adapted and used to suit different year groups and abilities. Some lessons already provide ideas and resources for differentiation within the class.

There are also lessons however, which bring in LGBT issues and people as one of many other issues. …

It follows research to identify policy, practice, awareness and confidence around dealing with homophobic incidents. The research suggested that in relation to bullying and discrimination, the issue of sexual orientation is less embedded compared to other equality strands such as gender, disability and race, and teachers were less confident in dealing consistently and effectively with homophobia. …

  8. Homophobic bullying. Safe to learn: embedding anti-bullying work in schools

    Every child in every school has the right to learn free from the fear of bullying, whatever form that bullying may take. Everyone involved in a child's education needs to work together to ensure that this is the case.

A preventative approach to bullying means that schools safeguard thewelfare of their pupils. …

    The report from this study, The Principal's Perspective: School Safety, Bullying and Harassment, reveals a rich and complex picture of the attitudes of principals. Half of principals surveyed deem bullying, name-calling or harassment of students to be a serious problem at their school. Only one-third of secondary school principals say that a lesbian, gay or bisexual student would feel very safe at their school and only one-quarter say that a transgender student would feel very safe. …

  11. Studying oursleves as scholar-teachers in the age of HIV and AIDS in southern Africa

    In southern Africa, critically high levels of HIV and AIDS have brought about an expectation that all teachers should integrate HIV- and AIDS-related education into their subject areas. Research suggests that such integration can be supported by teacher education that takes account of the vital mediating role that teachers' experiences and perspectives play in HIV- and AIDS-related education. …
