Educational Psychology Service

The Service applies psychological principles to the processes of teaching, learning and behaviour and works closely with parents, teachers, school special educational needs co-ordinators (SENCos) and other professionals involved with children and young people.

The majority of requests for involvement come from schools and each Educational Psychologist (EP) is allocated responsibility for a number of schools, which they visit on a regular basis. They often act as consultants to parents and staff within the school, advising them on the problems that have been identified. EPs also work on a one-to-one basis with pupils, assessing their difficulties and advising on strategies for helping them.

Children who have not reached school age but who have significant difficulties are referred to the EPS for advice by Early Years settings or by the Child Development Team.

Before an EP can see a child individually parental permission is required and, in any case, an EP would always want to talk to a childs parents as part of an assessment.
