Educational Psychologist

Educational psychologists support schools and the local authority to improve all children's experiences of learning. They use their training in psychology and knowledge of child development to assess difficulties children may be having with their learning. This knowledge is usually passed onto teachers and parents in the form of a report, which will include strategies for the school to use in the classroom to support your child.


The Educational Psychologist works in many ways to gain an overall picture of the child and any difficulties they may be facing; including classroom observations, meetings with parents and teachers and individual assessments. The Educational Psychologist also undertakes individual work with children as well as providing advice, support and training for staff.


We will speak to you about a referral to the Educational Psychologist if we believe it would be beneficial for your child for the Educational Psychologist to gain a better understanding of how your child learns best and what we can do to support them to fully access the curriculum in school.
