Record type: Book Section


This chapter explores specialist support for Gypsy Traveller children in primary and secondary schools in the UK. It examines the value of the specialist support measures adopted by Traveller Education Services (TESs) inschools which facilitate and promote regular attendance; these include transport arrangements, the provision of uniforms and liaison with the Education Welfare Service (EWS). It also explores how learning is supported through study and homework support and the designation of sanctuary territory. Such specialist support in schools is crucial in encouraging successful attendance, access to curriculum and satisfactory achievement levels for Gypsy Traveller children. It is also an essential prerequisite for effective work with this group of generally socially excluded children.
