  1. The problem is not just that teachers need guidelines as to what to do with homophobic bullying but also that it isnlt taken very saeriously by a lot of teachers, particularly in primary schools. There is an assumption that primary and junipor school aged children don’t understand the homophobic language they use and therefore it isn’t intended to be homophobic and needn’t be challenged. I am a governor at a primary school and essentially I am the only person in the school that seems to think 7 year olds using ‘gay’ as a general term of abuse is something to be concerned about.

  2. Apologies for the awful typing!
