For Teachers of Travellers + Other Professionals
In this part of our website you will find information and links on resources available for use in schools with Traveller children. As Lord Adonis said in 2008:
“We need to create an inclusive learning environment for all children. All cultural backgrounds should be understood and respected. Children from Gypsy, Roma and Traveller (GRT) communities should feel safe and cherished in school and therefore parents and pupils will be proud to identify themselves.”
Children learn best when they feel safe, secure and supported as well as excited and motivated. GRT children need to see their culture reflected in their school environment. Seeing themselves and things that are familiar to them will make them feel happy and confident. The resources outlined here; particularly in the NATT+ Resources Catalogue and the companion NATT+ eShop were created for just this purpose.
In this section
The online version of our Resources Catalogue. It puts you in touch with the producers/distributers of resources so that you can obtain items. Updated as and when we receive information to do so. Consequently likely to be the most up-to-date way of checking availability and prices of items.
Any Traveller Education Service or organisation which has produced culturally specific/sensitive resources for sale may advertise them on our website facility free of charge. Items can be included in future issues of our catalogue.
N.B. For legal reasons NATT+ is not able to recommend resources however all resources listed in this area have all been suggested by our colleagues in Traveller Education.
NATT+ does not stock any items that are in the eShop with the exception of those that have been produced by NATT+ or are distributed by NATT+. Find out about our own resources here.
This site has many resources for use with school-children available to download. NATT+ members have exclusive access to these resources in the members' area.
National Strategies Documents
The National Strategies website had many useful documents for those working in, and those interested in, Traveller education. Sadly, their website is now closed and a lot of information lost. However, NATT+ had permission to collect the documents pertinent to our work and allow people to continue to download these document from our website. These are available to members in the members' area.
Our Documents page is home to a variety of reports, articles and spreadsheets relevent to Teachers of Travellers + other Professionals.
