Gypsy, Roma, Traveller and Circus Children Support

Services
Enhancing Aspirations and Maximising Potential
Many Gypsy, Roma and Traveller children are enjoying their experience of school in Liverpool, and many of their parents are delighted to see their children now progressing on to study in further and higher education institutions.

This has been achieved by the warm and inclusive welcome of Liverpool schools and other settings, and their strong working relationships with the EMTAS team.

The team strive to help to improve Home /School links, improved attendance and the provision of extra-curricular activities to support homework and continued learning during school holidays.

We do not have many children who have elected for home education, and it has become the norm for children to take up educational provision as soon as they are eligible in their early years.

Our dedicated and professional team supports children from Gypsy, Traveller and Roma families to enhance their educational performance and seek to enhance  their aspirations and maximise their potential.
