Educational psychologists provide a specialist service to schools and pre five establishments. They work in collaboration with teachers, parents and other professionals to help children and young people make the most of their lives, particularly in educational settings.
This school has a system in place for monitoring and reviewing the progress of all children. As part of this system, we have a named educational psychologist who visits the school on a regular basis and who is part of the school’s extended support team.
When concerns arise about a particular pupil, the school plans action to address these concerns. Parents are kept informed throughout this process. When those working with your child would like the help of the educational psychologist, they will discuss this with you and arrange a meeting involving the psychologist.
Through this process the educational psychologist can contribute to the ongoing assessment of your child, where appropriate.
