Educational psychology

What is an educational psychologist?

Educational psychologists are trained psychologists and registered health professionals who specialise in child development. They are experienced in working with children and young people.

 They work with parents, carers, schools, nurseries and children’s social care. They also work with other support services within our Children and Young People’s Services (CYPS) to support children’s and young people’s learning and social and emotional development.

They can work with an individual child, a class, group, or with a whole school when there is a concern.
