Gypsies, Travellers and interrupted learners
We work in partnership with other agencies to make sure the needs of children who experience interrupted learning are supported.
- Support to Gypsy and Traveller families in accessing school, nursery and other educational opportunities
- Consultation, advice and support for education staff and staff in other agencies
- Co-operative teaching
- Teaching support to individual and small groups of pupils
- Loan service of resources to schools, support staff, children and families
- In-service training
The service is available to all families from a Travelling background.
Decisions relating to individual children and families who experience interrupted learning are made in consultation with Head Teachers, Area Managers and the Support for Learning Teams.
Requests for help can be made from parents, school staff or other agencies.
