This chapter discusses some aspects of good practice in a mixed comprehensive school in a rural village. It argues that the rural setting has an effect on anti-racist strategies, issues of segregation, and integration and curriculum content for Gypsy Traveller pupils. The chapter also emphasises the need for policy makers to consider the racism that is faced by a lot of Gypsy Traveller pupils. The development of innovative practice that meets the needs of pupils with nomadic lifestyles which present significant challenges to educators and local education authorities is also considered.

Keywords:   good practice, anti-racist strategies, issues of segregation, integration, curriculum content, Gypsy Traveller pupils, racism, nomadic lifestyles, local education authorities
