This article examines what happened within one Church of England primary school during an action research project concerning sexualities. No Outsiders aimed at exploring how teachers developed classroom practices that promoted greater inclusion of sexual minorities, at the same time as working to eradicate homophobic bullying and heterosexism. This examination engages current research methodologies, including post-structural analytics and narrative ethnography, to consider the viewpoints of headteacher and researcher, with a particular reference to faith issues. Various intersections are considered - between different faith positions and between different theoretical approaches - to conclude that while there are risks involved in straddling critical boundaries, there are also benefits in terms of creativity and motivation.
