Welcoming Traveller Pupils to your School

We have put together a comprehensive information booklet for teachers.

There are lots of ideas outlining good practice for race equality, establishing and maintaining relationships with Traveller parents and welcoming pupils who have never been to school before. Anxieties that Traveller parents have about school are explained. We have also included information about different Traveller groups: Gypsy and Romany, Irish Travellers, Showmen, Circus and Performing Families and New Travellers.

We hope that the booklet will be a useful reference for all schools in the county, whether they have Traveller pupils currently on roll or not.
