Who we are:
Educational Psychologists (also called EPs or Ed Psychs) have professional qualifications in psychology and educational psychology – the study of how children develop, learn and behave.
What we do:
Educational Psychologists work collaboratively with school staff, parents and children themselves to help ensure that young people with additional educational needs who are having difficulties at school receive the right sort of help.
Each of the maintained schools in Hackney has an allocated EP who visits regularly to help with strategic planning.
Many of Hackney’s maintained schools also buy in additional EP time. How this is used is often agreed during termly multi-agency planning meetings.
Educational Psychology Parent Advice Service
A Parent Advice Service is run by the EPS independently of its work in schools.
This service is open to:
- all children and families living in Hackney including those children not yet in school
- children who are out of school
- children who live in Hackney and attend school in other boroughs
This is an opportunity for parents and carers to have a discussion about concerns that they may have about their children or young person.
There are 3 appointments available each week. Parents wishing to attend the session are advised to book a 45 minute appointment slot.
The service is unable to see parents or carers without an advanced booking.
Bookings can be made on: 020 8820 7000 option 4 then option 1
