keeping children learning at home

STEP has created an online learning platform full of great educational resources and activities to help keep children from a Gypsy or Traveller background learning during the coronavirus outbreak. All of the activities can be done without a teacher and every week they are adding more.

For accessibility, most of the information and learning activities use video or audio and cover a whole range of topics including COVID-19 help and information for parents and carers. They have also created a handy list of useful educational websites and apps for children to use. 

They offer lots of opportunities for young Gypsies and Travellers to get creative and you can also have a look at what other young Travellers have been up to.

They also offer support for teachers. Keep up-to-date with STEP’s activities and Gypsy/Traveller learning programme by visiting their website here:
