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
The Parent Advice Service is held at:
Hackney Learning Trust,
1 Reading Lane,
Time: 2pm - 4pm every Wednesday, during term times only.
The EPS advise parents to phone in advance to book a 30 minute appointment slot as the service has proven very popular.
Appointments are not guaranteed without an advanced booking.
Bookings can be made on: 020 8820 7519
