Educational Psychology

Description

Educational Psychologists (EPs) are part of the Education Inclusion Service and work with parents, schools, early years, alternative learning settings and other agencies. We work mainly in schools, helping staff to find solutions to improve the learning outcomes and social and emotional development of children and young people. Educational Psychologists have qualifications in psychology and experience working with children and young people. They understand how children and young people learn, the things that can make learning difficult and how psychological models and approaches can be used to help children and young people make progress.

What we do:
Educational Psychologists are most effective when working with the adults involved with a child or young person. In addition to this, we sometimes to carry out observations, meet with the child or young person to talk with them and complete assessments to find out how they learn and how they feel as a learner. We aim to support parents, carers and staff working with children and young people to understanding more clearly their needs in order to plan the best way to help them make progress.

Educational Psychologists always work collaboratively with school staff, parents/carers and the pupil, and a record of all work carried out with the pupil is recorded and feedback is given at the review meeting.
