Traveller Education

Cognus celebrates and supports a diverse community and our Traveller Education Service work with Gypsy Roma and Traveller children and young people aged 0-19 years.

The service uses a multi-agency approach to promote and facilitate improved access to educational opportunities among all Gypsy, Roma and Traveller families.

This service includes:

  • Supporting families with applications and educational processes
  • Delivering one-to-one pupil support in school to support academic achievement
  • Assisting with home/school liaison
  • Supporting children into school and further education
  • Help with accessing health services

Here’s a short video of what some of the schools have said about our Traveller Education Service.
