dc.description.abstract In 2013, the Department of Education and Skills Anti-Bullying Procedures for Primary and Post-Primary Schools were issued, requiring all primary and secondlevel schools to include homophobia and transphobia in their anti-bullying policies and to document and implement prevention and education strategies. This study was conducted in May and June 2015 with parents, teachers and school leaders - 46 people across six schools. It provides new insight into how primary schools are experiencing and approaching the prevention of homophobia and transphobia as well as educating about gender and sexuality identity. The following is a summary of the key findings from across the cohorts of parents, teachers and school leaders. Questions raised and future directions appear at the end of this report. en_US
