Travelling people - support for children
If you are from another country, speak another language or have a different ethnicity, lifestyle or belief system, help and support is provided to children and young people through the Minority Ethnic Achievement Network.
This is a network of professionals who work with children and young people from minority ethnic groups, including gypsy, roma and traveller communities and speakers of English as an additional language (or EAL as it is known). Support is mainly provided through staff based at the local Minority Ethnic Achievement (MEA) hub schools listed below who then give support, advice and training to teachers and other professionals in your child's local school.
There are six hub schools in North Yorkshire:
If you need advice or support for your child, please contact your nearest MEA hub school to arrange a meeting or contact the Inclusion Consultant on the telephone number or email address shown below.
