Most London primary teachers 'can not' talk about homosexuality

The majority of London's primary school teachers think they can not talk about homosexuality in the classroom.

A survey found only 11% of teachers knew they could discuss gay issues, such as same-sex parents, in front of children.

The polling by Stonewall reveals primary school teachers in London are significantly less likely than their peers across the country to know whether they are allowed to teach about lesbian, gay or bisexual issues.

It found 35% of teachers in Scotland, 29% in the rest of the south, 24% in the north and 22% in Midlands and Wales, knew they could talk about homosexuality.
