Educational Psychology Team

Educational Psychology Team

The Educational Psychology Team (EPT) work with children and young people from 0- 25, and with the adults who are involved with them, in order to improve educational outcomes.

EPs work with underachieving students, students with additional needs, students with behavioural difficulties and other students who are failing to make progress despite school based interventions. They also work with students who are experiencing home based difficulties which are impacting on their attainment in school.

The work of the EPT involves clarification of the problem, assessment, analysis and joint problem solving. This may relate to individual students, groups or whole school issues. Parents are seen as a key contributor to this process and are invited to contribute at all levels.

The EPT is able to provide guidance and advice for all aspects of child development and learning. Advice and support is also provided in relation to wider school or home issues where a psychological perspective can add value.

All EPs have extensive training and qualifications and it is a condition of their mandatory registration with the Health and Care Professions Council that they undertake regular professional development. This ensures that their work incorporates up to date thinking and information on a range of issues, including general education matters, SEN, psychology and the implications of research for practice in schools.

All of our EPs are registered with the Health and Care Professions Council and work within their code of conduct. All EPs receive regular supervision and an annual performance review with their line manager. Statutory reports are peer reviewed and all our training events and interventions are evaluated and analysed for quality and effectiveness.

All Bradford schools have an allocation of time from the EPT and are able to purchase additional top up sessions. If you wish to speak to an EP, in the first instance this should be arranged via the special needs coordinator in the child’s school.
