Homophobic Bullying: How well do we understand the problem?
A summary report on the findings of a comprehensive review of recent academic, third sector and government reports.
The report unpicks a number of ‘taken for granted’ assumptions around homophobic bullying and seeks to develop a wider understanding of the:
• nature and extent of homophobic bullying
• groups and individuals affected
• impact on those involved
• measures available to tackle the problem
Cyberhomophobia and bullying
Experts from the field of anti-bullying and safeguarding gathered to explore what ‘targeted’ e-safety teaching should ‘look like’ for the most vulnerable to prejudice-based bullying.
Ofsted: Exploring school’s actions to prevent homophobic bullying
EACH provides training, informed by Ofsted’s guidelines, which helps schools and other youth settings develop strategies to challenge homophobic or transphobic bullying through positive, constructive methods. For more information visit our training pages.
Cyberhomophobia and the experiences of young people
A infograph on young people’s experiences of homophobia online based on the findings of the Reach Cybersurvey.
The Reach cybersurvey was planned to find out the extent of cyberbullying and cyber abuse experienced by young people aged 10 – 16 and 17+ and their use of e-safety advice. A set of questions were developed to elicit responses on homophobic bullying online and using mobiles and handheld devices. The results have yielded vital information on the extent of homophobic, sexist and cyberbullying in participating areas.
Preventing and Tackling Bullying
The guidance was produced in 2011 to help schools prevent and respond to bullying as part of their overall behaviour policy, to understand their legal responsibilities in this area, as well as the Department’s approach. It is also available as a web-based resource.
Safe to Learn: Embedding anti-bullying work in schools
In 2007 the former Department for Children, Schools and Families (now Department of Education) produced a suite of guidance to assist schools and local authorities with preventing and responding to bullying, including specific guidance on homophobic and transphobic bullying.
