Resources by EACH (Educational Action Challenging Homophobia)
Two resources to support teachers and those working with young people to open up a dialogue around homophobia, sexism and cyberbullying.
The Reach Teaching Resource has been designed to support teachers and those working with young people to open up a dialogue around homophobia, sexism and cyberbullying. The resource will enable teachers to explore and reflect upon pupils’ experiences, values and existing knowledge to effectively challenge prejudice-based bullying. The resource includes lesson plans, group activity prompts, information about National Curriculum Links and a DVD containing 13 short films.
EACH (Educational Action Challenging Homophobia) has produced the Reach Teaching Resource which is a comprehensive resource intended to help explore and challenge the vital issue of homophobic bullying.
It is based on substantial research into young people’s personal experiences and provides 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. In addition to lesson material (including age-appropriate film clips) the resource also provides two eye-catching A3 posters sending a clear message that homophobia is unacceptable in schools.
It meets the standards of the PSHE Association Quality Assurance Mark and we would recommend it for teachers seeking a route into exploring and challenging both stereotyping and homophobic bullying in a variety of contemporary forms.
The PSHE Association’s Subject Lead Nick Boddington says;
“This is a really powerful relevant resource tackling an issue of vital importance to all schools and colleges.”

Secretary of State for Education (2014-16), Nicky Morgan says:
“Inspiring Equality in Education is a fantastic programme led by EACH. It will help all schools better understand homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying and deal with it effectively. These school resources for Key Stages 1 to 4 will play an important role in helping schools stamp out bullying.”
