Creating a 'LGBT+ Friendly' School

Despite positive changes in culture and the law, homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying continue to be experienced in many of our schools. According to Stonewall:

  • - 45% of LGBT young people have experienced homophobic, biphobic or transphobic bullying
  • - 45% of LGBT young people never tell anyone when they are bullied for being LGBT
  • - 90% of secondary school teachers say children and young people regardless of their sexual orientation experience homophobic bullying
  • - 64% of trans pupils are bullied at school


The course aims to :

  • develop understanding of terminology and the key concepts relating to LGBT+  within a school setting.
  • develop an understanding of law and relevant policy
  • develop an understanding of curriculum opportunities, including quality assured resources
  • develop an understanding of the impact of bullying and discrimination on children and young people, including how to tackle homophobic, biphobic and transphobic language. 
  • identify possible support strategies for use on an individual, classroom and whole school level,
  • develop participants confidence in talking to pupils and colleagues about LGBT+ issues
  • develop participants confidence in being able to support bi, trans and gender questioning young people and their families
  • develop an understanding of national and local support services
