Gypsy / Roma / Traveller Children

Each year we receive a few enquiries for information on the education of children from a gypsy, roma or traveller background. There are a couple of books in the library on this topic, and in addition to these I would now recommend that students take a look at The Inclusion of Gypsy, Roma and Traveller Children and Young People, which was published yesterday by the DCSF.

As well as containing information about current educational provision for these children, the report also contains details about the first Gypsy, Roma and Traveller History Month, which is due to occur during June; there is now a website for this event, and details of planned activities will be placed here soon. If this topic is of particular interest to you, then you may also want to take a look at Supporting Early Years Practitioners Working with Gypsy, Roma and Traveller Families, which was published by Save The Children last year.
