Education Psychology Service

Who are we?

Educational psychologists work with children and young people aged 0-25 and the professionals who support them. We believe every child and young person, with or without SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disability), has the ability to achieve and learn new skills, to enjoy positive emotional health and well-being, and have the right to belong and be included in education and their community. Most children and young people with SEND will have their needs met through their nursery, school or college. This could be from trained staff, or the staff might get advice from specialist teachers. However, sometimes an educational psychologist may be asked to help.

Educational Psychologists specialise in using psychology to create positive change for children and young people. We are confident that the thoughtful application of psychology can transform children’s lives for the better. We believe that children thrive when they are included, and we are committed to supporting parent/carers and schools to help this happen. Educational Psychologists work in partnership with children, families, and professionals

The following leaflets contain information with more details about how we may work:

Parents / carers should talk to the SENCo from their child’s educational setting if they have concerns about their development or progress, academically, socially, or emotionally. The setting can then discuss this with the Educational Psychologist as part of the termly planning meeting if it is agreed to be appropriate. In some instances, if other professionals are working with children and families, they may discuss them with the Educational Psychologist.
