Interim result, 7th June 2012:
Staff report on witness homophobic bullying more often than hear ‘Gay’ ie. they might not consider calling someone ‘Gay’ to be homophobic bullying.
“[I] reported to both the teacher and to a parent. Both myself and the people who had bullied me were brought in for a meeting in which the bullying was talked about and it was agreed that it would come to a stop. I still didn't feel myself after this, and still didn't want to attend school. I ended up leaving school early and never completed my GCSE's.” (Female, Age 19+)
“[My] mother, she told [the] teachers, in primary school. This did not help as then teachers just told people to be nice to me, which resulted in more bullying - including being stabbed in the arm with a sharp pencil, and teachers [were] not doing anything other than yelling at the bully and give me anticipative to help. I had no help trying to fit in and I did have friends but felt alone. This only stopped when I had a fresh start in secondary school, but even then I had trouble socialising for a long time.” (Female, Age 14)
“I didn’t want to talk to an adult about it because I felt embarrassed.” (Female student, Age 13)
“I'm afraid that once the teachers take action, people will see me as a "tattle tale" and not want to be my friend.” (Female student, Age 13)
“Because it’s pointless as the teachers wouldn’t do or say anything because it’s just a joke.” (Male student, Age 14)
“commitment to be LGBT affirmative, creating a safe environment for young people to talk if they want to” (LAC Nurse)
“To be more aware of services and refer young people to these services […]. To continue to advice my team on this area.” (Service Manager Mental Health service)
“To be more aware of LGBT people in my work, to listen” (CASH Nurse)
