This Prevalence of Homophobia survey was born out of the experiences of one secondary classroom teacher who was the subject of repeated physical and verbal abuse over a number of years.
This survey is then the product of a lot of hard work by a large number of people over a number of years together the thousands of classroom teachers who took time from their impossible workloads to complete the questionnaire all of whom I congratulate and offer my sincere thanks.

Schools must tackle homophobic bullying as forcefully as they do other forms of discrimination, says Elizabeth Bridges*
For anyone who works in a school, bullying is an unfortunate reality. From comments about weight to remarks about ethnicity or disability, pupils – and some teachers – can be cruel and thoughtless.
Understanding gender and sexuality is essential for new teachers, long standing teachers, heterosexual teachers and lesbian, gay bisexual or trans teachers. It is also vital to understand in order to meet new legal and Ofsted requirements.
The Schools Out website is currently undergoing a make-over. Please bear with us as we get all of our historical content back online with the new format. If you have any queries or questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
