Introduction

The Gypsy Roma Traveller (GRT) education team works with schools and settings to support the progress, attainment and attendance of GRT pupils.

In our work with schools we increase staff knowledge and understanding of this ethnic community so that informed consideration can be given to their particular circumstances and requirements, and so that GRT pupils are provided with the best possible outcomes in their learning and development across all key stages of education.

We highlight effective local and national practice to support schools and settings to provide conditions for learning that value diversity, challenge racism, promote racial equality and develop positive partnerships with GRT communities.
