Sexuality discrimination and homophobic bullying

Find out more about the Project

The Guidelines for supporting sexual and gender diversity in schools were created to assist schools, in both public and private education sectors, to effectively address bullying specific to sexuality and gender diversity.  The Guidelines have also been written to create greater awareness and to encourage a whole school and community approach to this issue.

Aligned with the principles of the National Safe Schools Framework, the Guidelines aim to draw on the strengths of school communities to create teaching and learning environments where all members fees, and are, safe from discrimination, bullying and harassment.

Furthermore, Australia has both national and state legislation that underpins the respect, fairness and safety expected in school environments.
