Gypsy Roma Traveller children support

Parents with children from the Gypsy, Roma and Traveller community can get help with schooling.

The Teaching and Learning Provision Gypsy Roma Traveller (GRT) team support children aged 2 to 16.

They help children to access education, make good progress and enjoy school.

This can include:

  • helping parents choose and apply for pre-school and school
  • supporting your child to prepare for and settle at school
  • working with pre-schools and schools to understand your cultural heritage
  • working with schools and parents to meet your child’s needs
  • working closely with other services to put parents at the heart of decision making
  • helping children to progress and make friends during the move from primary to secondary school
  • supporting with exams (SAT’s and GCSE’s)
  • exploring options for the end of Year 11
