Request Educational Psychologist involvement
Early years settings, school and colleges
If you would like support from an EP, you will need to complete our Request for EP Involvement Form.
For most types of work, your school/setting will need to have a subscription to the EP Service. You can find out more information about our costs.
Early years settings do not need to subscribe to the EP Service. This work is funded by the Local Authority.
We have found that is it most useful for schools/settings, when consulting with their EP about children and young people's needs, to think about this process:
- Discuss some of your thoughts and concerns with your EP and what you'd like from their involvement.
- Complete our Request for EP Involvement Form and ensure it is signed by parent(s)/person with parental responsibility. Ensure that you share our parent information leaflet.
- Return this to your EP.
As a psychology service, we take requests for involvement from schools and other educational settings. If you are a parent/carer and think that your child would benefit from EP involvement, please discuss this with the relevant member of staff at your child's educational settings. This is usually the Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCo) or the Headteacher. It might also be worth exploring the range of information available if you and your child's school think that your child has additional needs.
