The Community Learning Team provides support and advice to all Gypsy, Romany and Traveller children, their families and local education providers.

As part of the Education Safeguarding Service, our support is designed to make sure all children have access to education and that any barriers to learning are identified and removed. We are also able to help children and families identify and engage with support, where it is needed.

We support Traveller children from Gypsy, Irish Traveller, Romany, New Traveller and Fairground families, whether they live in houses, authorised Traveller sites, unauthorised sites or temporary fairground and circus locations.
