Educational resources on homophobic bullying and inclusivity

In February 2012, Ofsted published a ‘Good practice resource — A whole-school approach to tackling homophobic bullying and ingrained attitudes: Stoke Newington School and Sixth Form’.

Stoke Newington has a curriculum which meets the needs of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender students (LGBT) and extends all students’ understanding of diversity. Training for all staff, their commitment to equality and diversity and their approach to poor behaviour have successfully tackled homophobic language, attitudes and bullying.

Ofsted also published a ‘Good practice resource —Creating an inclusive school community: Central Street Infant and Nursery School’ (February 2012).

Knowledge of different types of families ensures that all parents and carers regardless of their sexuality and backgrounds are welcomed into this inclusive school community. Provision in the Early Years Foundation Stage and in Key Stage 1 ensures that pupils whose parents and carers or family members are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgendered (LGBT) feel included. The school has successfully tackled homophobic language, attitudes and behaviour.
