Teachers' attitudies towards Gypsy and Traveller pupils in schools

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)

This article examines teacher’s attitudes towards Gypsy and Traveller pupils in one primary and one secondary school in an inner London borough, in England UK. The research is based on in-depth interviews with twenty teachers, heads, deputies and classroom assistants. The main aims of the study were to examine examples of ‘good practice’ in schools and to explore strategies that would improve the educational outcomes for Gypsy and Traveller groups. This article will argue that despite schools taking positive inclusive measures for Gypsy and Traveller pupils this alone does not encourage positive attitudes or change attitudes towards them. In some cases, it could be argued that such practices emphasise the difference and outsider status of such groups.
