Homophobic bullying


The Reach Teaching Resource on prejudice-based bullying is awarded the PSHE Association Quality Mark

EACH (Educational Action Challenging Homophobia) has produced the Reach Teaching Resource, to help explore and challenge the vital issue of homophobic bullying.

It has been designed to support teachers and those working with young people to open up a dialogue around homophobia, sexism and cyberbullying.

'Reach' includes a range of high quality teaching and learning material broken into lessons appropriate for years 7 to 13 (Key Stages 3, 4 and 5).  Much of the learning is 'open ended' allowing pupils to explore, clarify and challenge their own attitudes and values. The resource pack includes lesson plans, group activity prompts, information about National Curriculum Links and a DVD containing 13 short films.

How to get the resource

The resource is available for a one–off payment of £35 plus postage and packaging. Secondary schools, colleges and complementary agencies in North Somerset, South Gloucestershire and Bristol are entitled to a free copy of the Resource.

To register your interest in receiving a copy of the resource please e-mail with your name, contact details and institution’s address.

The PSHE Association’s Subject Lead Nick Boddington says that; “This is a really powerful relevant resource tackling an issue of vital importance to all schools and colleges. It will enable teachers to explore and reflect upon pupils’ experiences, values and existing knowledge to effectively challenge prejudice-based bullying.”
