Action in Schools

action in schools

The Equality Act 2010 places a legal duty on all public bodies, including local authorities and schools, to take steps to eradicate discrimination, advance equality and foster good relations. They have to take a proactive role in tackling homophobic bullying and protect those who might be experiencing it.

These easy things that could be done in your school:

  1. Ensure that your school has a policy that specifically talks about tackling homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying
  2. Have visible LGBT inclusion from posters, to lessons to signposting young people to organisations that can help
  3. Suggest our training opportunities for staff and pupils. Link to training and education
  4. Set up a gay-straight alliance (GSA) or LGBT group in your school link to schools-out.org.uk/STK/STK_GSA.htm
