Several of the 22 refused to comment on the issue but the general view of the rest seemed to be that if guidelines change, they would reconsider their policies.
Brian Mawby, Blaenau Gwent CBC's director of education, said: 'I think this is a storm in a teacup. There seems to be some suggestion that if s28 were repealed there would be hoards of literature and information about lesbians and gay men in schools.
'Of course homosexuality is going to be discussed; children have inquisitive minds. But parents have nothing to fear. Teachers know how to deal with these situations and it is their job to deal with the questions appropriately.'
'Teachers are professionals who should be trusted to do their job appropriately, as should the LEAs to give their advice and guidelines.'
