Educational psychology

Update 21/09/2023: Gradual return to Educational Psychology early intervention work.  Find out more about this temporary change to the educational psychology service delivery model.

Our Educational Psychology Service (EPS) supports schools to implement SEND duties and requirements through:

  • Specialist consultation using problem-solving and solution-focused techniques
  • Psychological assessment
  • Practical advice
  • Training, Inset and twilight sessions
  • Clinical supervision to support staff development and wellbeing
  • Action research

The EPS also works with parents and carers of CYP with SEND and/or other complex needs and vulnerabilities. We promote emotional health and wellbeing, preparation for adulthood and educational success. The Educational Psychology team has detailed knowledge of SEND legislation and current best practice to support vulnerable children and young people.
