Education psychology service

The EPS provides support to nurseries, school and colleges to meet the needs of children and young people (0–25 years) with additional special educational needs and/or emotional or mental health needs. They work mainly in schools and settings and provide advice via consultations with school staff and parents; carry out assessments and observations of children and young people and undertake direct therapeutic interventions with individuals and groups. Educational psychologists also provide whole school support and training to settings on a range of learning and mental well-being issues.

The EPS provides advice to the local authority when Education, Health and Care Needs assessments are being undertaken for a child or young person.

Requests for EPS support are made by schools and settings, via their Special Educational Needs/Inclusion Co-ordinators.
