Educational Psychology Service

Monday to Friday 9am-5pm

The Educational Psychology Service for the City of London uses psychology to promote the wellbeing and learning of children and young people aged 0-25.

We work closely with other professionals, staff in settings, parents/carers and the young people themselves to ensure that children and young people have their special educational needs (SEN) identified early and then receive the right kind of evidence-based intervention.

In order to be effective in helping settings make a difference for these children we:

  • Work within a consultative framework that may lead to direct assessment work to inform intervention over time
  • Problem-solve and reframe situations to identify and promote different perspectives
  • Listen to the needs and views of everyone with whom we work and consult directly with the young person to give them a voice
  • Help settings implement strategies and interventions at an individual, group, class, year group or whole school level
  • Provide training in specialist areas of need
  • Support school staff in responding to and managing a critical incident

We become involved if the child or young person:

  • Attends Sir John Cass Foundation Primary School or Child and Family Centre and been identified with SEN
  • Is undergoing a statutory Education, Health and Care (EHC) assessment
  • Has been issued with an EHC plan and the provision is being reviewed or concerns are raised

We may also become involved when a child or young person resident in the City of London is out of school due to exclusion or non-attendance.
