Abstract: School safety is a concern for any student. Despite years of research into bullying, some students remain bigger targets for bullying than others. Worse, some bullying remains more accepted. Homophobia is a common form of bullying, with 38 per cent of same-sex attracted youth reporting unfair treatment on the basis of their sexuality. With one in 10 students experiencing same-sex attraction nationally, this is a form of bullying that demands immediate attention from both school bodies and teaching staff.
