Homophobic, biphobic and transphobic (HBT) bullying 

Schools tend to cover HBT bullying within their wider anti-bullying policy, rather than as a standalone policy. See examples below of policies that refer to HBT bullying in more detail. 


Abbey Gates Primary School in Nottingham has an anti-bullying policy that references: 

  • Use of homophobic language
  • Instances where transphobic bullying may occur 

St Luke's Primary School in East Sussex, incorporates bullying based on gender identity or sexual orientation under the banner of prejudiced-based bullying. Its policy outlines how the school records this form of bullying (scroll down to 'Anti-bullying policy November 2021').
