Homophobic bullying; bullying arising from race, religion or colour; bullying based on a medical condition or appearance; and bullying due to SEN or disabilities can all be considered as prejudice-based bullying. Bullying of any kind causes misery for pupils and can have a severe impact on their school experience. Ofsted’s 2012 report ‘No place for bullying’ identified that staff felt least confident in tackling prejudice-based language.
