Don’t take our word for it

“Working collaboratively with the Educational Psychology Service provided an invaluable dimension to our school development”. Kate Travis, Head Teacher, New Invention Infant School

“Although I was confident that the school had put quality care and support into practice, following a critical incident at my school, I cannot praise highly enough the practical and pragmatic approach that the Educational Psychologist brought to our staff meeting to reassure and advise staff about the ways in which we could support pupils, parents and members of the community- all of whom had been affected”. Gerry Healey, Head Teacher, Park Hall Junior School

“I used to say holidays were the best days of my life but they’re not now. School days are”.

Quote from a previously excluded pupil following solution focussed brief therapy work with the Educational Psychologist

“I have gained a deeper understanding of the children within my class”. Class Teacher

“I can now speak to teachers about their behavioural concerns”. SENCO
