Gypsy, Roma, Traveller and Showmen (GRTS)

We support schools to meet the needs of children from Traveller backgrounds (including Gypsy, Roma, Travellers of Irish Heritage, Showmen, Circus and Occupational Travellers). We can offer support with:

  • admission into school, links with parents, carers and communities, advice and direction on settling in, induction and transition
  • short-term intervention programmes, which can include in-class support
  • individualised transition programmes for Traveller pupils from primary to secondary
  • developing inclusive approaches, fostering positive relationships and planning curriculum opportunities to value and promote Traveller culture
  • catch-up teaching onsite
  • anti-racism CPD for school staff and workshops for pupils
