School Report Scotland (2017)

Published in September 2017

Stonewall Scotland report into the experiences of lesbian, gay, bi and trans young people in Scotland's schools in 2017.

Compared to 2012, lesbian, gay and bi young people are less likely to be bullied at school because of their sexual orientation, and young people are more likely to be taught about LGBT issues in schools. Schools are more likely to explicitly say that homophobic and biphobic bullying is wrong. But while there has been welcome progress, this study shows how much there is left to do. Trans pupils are at particular risk: many face harassment and violence, with 71 per cent experiencing bullying at school.
