Educational psychologists work within local authorities, in partnership with families and other professionals, to help children and young people achieve their full potential. Educational psychologists support schools and the local authority to improve all children’s experiences of learning.
Our educational psychology experts use their training in psychology and knowledge of child development to assess difficulties students may be having with their learning. They provide advice and training on how our whole school community might help students to learn and develop. They recommend methods, or develop strategies in partnership with the class teams, to help students learn more effectively. Strategies may include teaching approaches, improvements to learning environments, advice on curriculum materials and behaviour support.
Educational psychologists also keep up-to-date with best practice, policy and research relating to how children learn and make sure this informs local policy and practice.
