Today, we mark the launch of the Traveller Movement’s new education microsite, and the release of the video we made to help promote it.

The site can be found at education.travellermovement.org.uk, and is aimed at: teachers, children and families alike – anyone who wants to learn more about Gypsy, Roma and Traveller education. You can find information about exclusions, special educational needs, applying for schools and lots more.

The right to education was incorporated into UK law by the Human Rights Act 1998 which means that the British government must ensure the right to education to every person in the UK. Unfortunately, the schooling system in the UK can often be hard to navigate, particularly for GRT children, so this website aims to provide support and information to help GRT kids flourish in their education.

Watch the video for yourself now, and check out the Traveller Movement’s new education microsite to learn more about the education system in the UK, and how we can best support GRT children and families.

EachOther is a UK-focused charity that uses independent journalism, storytelling and filmmaking to put the human into human rights. The digital content we produce is grounded in the lived experience of ordinary people affected by human rights issues. We involve them in the process of developing their stories, rather than talking for or over them. Theirs are the voices we platform and amplify to our lay audience of over a million viewers each year. In this way, we hope to grow public support for human rights here in the UK.
