Best place to find information and services that your council provides...
St Helens Traveller Education Service (TES) is a specialist service offering advice and support to schools on issues relating to the inclusion of Gypsy, Roma and Traveller (GRT) children in educational settings.
Alongside our work with schools we provide an outreach service directly to GRT families to support access to and inclusion in education. St Helens TES also works in partnership with many other services and agencies that support, or seek to support GRT communities.
Together, our school-focused and outreach staff team has a comprehensive breadth of local, regional and national knowledge and expertise, and a commitment to finding solutions to the most challenging inclusion issues.
“Research studies have consistently identified Gypsy, Roma and Traveller pupils as the group most at risk in the education system. However, research evidence also confirms that, when Gypsy, Roma and Traveller pupils are given the right learning environment and experiences, they can be equally as successful as any other group.”
