The Rainbow Project's Education Equality Curriculum Guide

"The impact of homophobic bullying is not limited to those who directly suffer it; young people who witness
homophobic bullying going unchallenged perceive their school to be unsafe (Stonewall, 2007). Where
homophobic bullying is stamped out, the school is perceived to be a safer place by all pupils, and sense of
belonging is increased."

TEACHERS TV
School Matters –Homophobia in Schools.
Actually children matter and this excellent programme makes that clear. All children – including those that are lesbian and gay, are thought to be lesbian and gay by others and who have lesbian and gay family or friends - have a right to an appropriate and positive education in a school that is both safe and comfortable and meets their needs.

This is a quietly considered programme, putting the arguments for both an inclusive curriculum and taking action against stereotyping, prejudice and negative discrimination. Our own Tony Fenwick works with 6 th formers and puts the case for LGBT people and issues in the curriculum with the intelligence and aplomb we have come to expect. I don’t think many teachers watch Teachers’ TV, but they should all watch this. You can see it on:

Watch it please and tell your friends.

School Matters - Challenging Homophobia
Homophobic bullying leads to more gay, lesbian and bisexual pupils playing truant and leaving school earlier than their heterosexual counterparts. Only six per cent of schools have specific policies to tackle the problem.

One such school successfully addressing this issue is the Turton High School Media Arts College in Bolton. The college has introduced the subject of homophobic bullying into its PSHE syllabus for Year 9 pupils and has produced the Living It campaign in conjunction with Bolton Public Health.

This programme follows a Year 9 lesson which involves activities to help children challenge attitudes about sexuality and also focuses on an INSET session with a representative of the Schools Out organisation.

We hear from staff and pupils who have experienced homophobic bullying first hand, illustrating the destructive effect such victimisation is having on pupils and staff in British schools.

Channel 4's Batty Man: PSHE Learning Notes

Comedian and actor Stephen K Amos uses his own experiences as a black gay man to explore why homophobia still exists in his own community.

This observational documentary – the title of which is a derogatory term for homosexuals – follows Amos on a journey from his childhood homes in Brixton and Tooting, South London, all the way to Jamaica, where he tries to discover why prejudice, intimidation and violence against gay men remain so prevalent.

The Channel Learning Website includes links, documentation and activities for the school curriculum.
