Staff Training and Student Workshops for Primary and Secondary Schools
According to Stonewall’s The School Report (2012) and The Teacher’s Report (2009) and Press for Change’s Engendered Penalties (2007):
- More than half (55%) of lesbian, gay and bisexual young people experience homophobic bullying at secondary school
- More than 2 in 5 primary school teachers (44%) say children experience homophobic bullying in their school
- 64% of trans men and 44% of trans women experienced transphobic bullying at school
Schools have a statutory duty to tackle all forms of bullying including homo/bi/transphobic bullying as well as a duty of care to ensure the safety and protect the wellbeing of all their students. The new Ofsted framework (launched in January 2012) places more focus on the behaviour and safety of students, including prejudice-based bullying and harassment such as homo/bi/transphobic bullying and harassment.

We can also provide training and workshops for schools in East and West Sussex.
