Introduction

The Traveller Education Service offers advice and support to schools, Traveller pupils and families. Traveller children are from Gypsy, Irish Traveller, Romany, New Traveller, Circus and Fairground families.

Traveller children can be living in houses, on authorised private or council sites, unauthorised sites or temporary fairground and circus locations.

Carefully managed support by the school and the Traveller Education Service can help Traveller children to settle into their new school and maintain continuity of education.
