Educational Psychology Team

The Educational Psychology Team provides a consultation, assessment and training service to schools and educational settings in Warrington, working with children and young people aged 0-25.  It also provides statutory assessment advice to the local authority for children and young people undergoing Education Health and Care assessments.

Following consultation/assessment around or with individual children or young people the Educational Psychologist will provide the school/setting, parents/carers and young people (over 16) with a written report detailing the consultation/assessment findings. The report will make specific recommendations about how school/setting staff and parents can help the children/young people make progress in their areas of need. Educational Psychologists work through schools/settings to support children and young people and do not typically work with them directly following the initial consultation/assessment session; however, when appropriate some time-limited direct therapeutic work with children and young people is possible.
