About the Educational Psychology Service (EPS)

Educational Psychologists use psychology and evidence based practice to promote the inclusion and well-being of children and young people with SEND and their families in various settings including:

•Some nursery settings and playgroups
•Schools
•Alternative education provisions
•Further education and colleges
•Children’s centres
•Family homes

We also support other professionals and services working with young people including: social care, youth offending team, the virtual schools for looked after children team and health professionals, amongst others.

In general, we help children, young people and families to think about their long-term aspirations and what is important in their lives. We also help people think about what is working and what is not working with children’s learning, development and emotional wellbeing.

Here is an example of some of the work we are doing now:

•Consultation (problem solving discussions)
•Project work with schools (‘bespoke’ packages)
•Therapeutic work e.g. solution focussed brief therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy etc
•Providing advice for Education, Health and Care Plans (EHCPs)
•EP drop in service at the Parents Advice centre (PAC)
•Assessing children’s learning profiles
•Crisis support (support for schools following a difficult situation)
•Working with parents to support them to make positive changes at home
•Support for professionals e.g. supervision, reflective practice etc
•Training for school staff, other professionals etc
•Research
•Interventions e.g. Video Interaction Guidance, Mindfulness etc
•Working with other professionals and services, as needed
•Systemic work (working with schools or services to reflect on their practice)
