This literature review (Wilkin, Derrington and Foster, 2009) represents one strand of a study funded by the DCSF, focusing on the issues faced by Gypsy, Roma and Traveller (GRT) pupils and what can be done to improve the educational outcomes for this particular group.
The review was intended to only include current research evidence and literature (including official reports and guidance, as well as policy documentation) on GRT pupils and their parents from the UK over the last ten years.
The review thus sought to identify relevant findings, evidence and discussion on the topic, including empirically-based research, policy documents, good practice examples, and evidence exploring academic and social issues. A total of 91 sources were selected as relevant and were summarised for inclusion in the review.
