Travelling people (support for children)
Traveller children, like any other children, must receive an education. This may involve going to school.
A traveller child or young person’s entitlement to a school education is not affected by their family’s mobility.
Traveller families teach their children and young people knowledge and skills, which they bring with them to school. Our schools will recognise, acknowledge and build on this prior learning.
The ASN Outreach Service should be informed if there are any nursery and school aged gypsy and traveller children and young people in the area. The gypsy and traveller teacher can then support any needs if appropriate with the parents and school.
