Buying Sessions from the Educational Psychology Team

Educational Psychology Team (EPT) Service Delivery 2024 - 25

I am pleased to inform you that following a successful recruitment programme, we should be significantly better staffed in 2024 – 25 and are looking forward to working more with you next academic year. The enhanced staffing means that this year we can offer a full range of statutory and pre-statutory services to ensure children and young people gain maximum benefit from their time in education.  

Please take time to have a look through our prospectus to see the range of services we can offer, and how we can best support you and your school.

As in previous years, we continue to carry out Education Health and Care Assessment work on behalf of the Local Authority. We also provide critical incident support to schools in the case of traumatic events. All of this work is centrally funded.

Schools have the option of purchasing Educational Psychology Team support in blocks of time to meet their own specific needs and priorities. We will work with you to identify and support children and young people with special educational needs, disability, and vulnerable learners in your setting. We provide psychological consultation, assessment, interventions, and advice that focuses on narrowing gaps in attainment, improving academic progress, promoting emotional well-being, and supporting social inclusion. Bespoke interventions can be developed and delivered on a need-led basis.

The attached EP time audit is intended to help you consider whether you would like to purchase Educational Psychology Team time, along with our Traded Services Brochure for 2024 -25.
