Buying Sessions from the Educational Psychology Team

Educational Psychology Team (EPT) Service Delivery 2022 - 23

I am pleased to let you know that through our steady growth plan, the Educational Psychology Team now comprises of over 30 EPs, Trainees EPs and Assistant EPs. This means that we have capacity to deliver a range of services and interventions to improve outcomes for children and young people in your school.

Over the past 12 months we have worked with a number of schools to develop their nurturing provision to facilitate the emotional wellbeing of students. We have been accredited by the DfE to deliver the ‘Senior Mental Health Lead’ programme and we have begun work on developing a district wide Neuro-diversity strategy.

Settings have the option of purchasing Educational Psychology Team support in blocks of time to meet their own specific needs and priorities. We offer a range of work aimed at promoting inclusion, psychological wellbeing and raising standards across the full range of age and abilities.

Bradford Educational Psychology Team will work with you to identify and support children and young people with special educational needs, disability and vulnerable learners in your setting. We will provide psychological consultation, assessment, interventions and advice that focuses on narrowing gaps in attainment, improving academic progress, promoting emotional wellbeing and supporting social inclusion. Bespoke interventions can be developed and delivered on a needs led basis.

Included with this letter is an audit tool so that you can begin to consider whether you would like to purchase Educational Psychology Team time, along with our Traded Services Brochure for 2022 - 23.
