Educational arrangements for Travellers
Traveller children have the same rights to education as settled children. They are also subject to the same rules on school attendance.
Co-ordination of Traveller education
The Advisory Committee on Traveller Education published a Report and Recommendations for a Traveller Education Strategy (pdf). A key objective of the report is the phasing out of segregated Traveller provision and the inclusion of Traveller children and young people in mainstream education.
Guidelines on Traveller education in primary schools and post-primary schools are available from the Department of Education and Skills.
The Department of Education and Skills is responsible for the co-ordination of Traveller education.
