About the team
The BCP Council Educational Psychology Service works to promote the well-being, inclusion and achievement of children and young people up to the age of 25.
We aim to bring about positive change for children and young people where there are concerns about their learning, language and communication, social and emotional well-being, mental health and physical or sensory needs.
We do this by working with the people who know children best – their families, their school, their teachers and other professionals who are involved.
We work with:
- Children and young people aged 0 to 25
- Early Years settings
- Post-16 education establishments
- Local Authority Officers
Through liaison with SENCos and Local Authority Services such as the Statutory SEN Team, Health Services and Children’s Social Care teams, Educational Psychologists may also be involved with individual pupils who have been prioritised for our service.
We are employed by the Local Authority to provide independent advice and are, first and foremost, advocates for the child or young person.
The Educational Psychology service is committed to the ongoing improvement of our practice through service feedback. Please click here to see our most recent summary
