Our Core Beliefs and Values

Ethics and Integrity

High standards of ethics and integrity, guided by the British Psychological Society Division of Educational and Child Psychology codes of conduct, are fundamental to all aspects of our practice.

Positive Relationships

Positive and trusting relationships which promote feelings of safety and security are fundamental for growth and development.

Promoting Inclusion

Schools both reflect and shape society and should therefore welcome and include all children and young people from the locality they serve. All our involvement is aimed at promoting inclusion, which involves changing schools, not changing children.

Collaboration

Collaboration with children and young people, their parents and carers, education staff and other professionals is crucial to bring about positive change.

More Info

South East Psychology believes that educational psychology services should be freely available through schools or local authorities to all children who are failing to make adequate progress or experience social, emotional or behavioural difficulties related to school. We are currently unable to undertake work commissioned directly by parents/carers.

If you have a concern about your child’s educational progress or behaviour in school, arrange to meet with the school’s Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCo), who will explain how the school is supporting your child. If your child fails to make satisfactory progress despite support and interventions, the school might make a referral to an educational psychologist (or another professional).

"As a SENCO the process of applying for an EHCP is arduous but it is made easier by the fact that the Educational Psychology reports from South East Psychology provide detailed, comprehensive evidence towards the Appendix Two that schools have to complete."

Primary SENCO May 2018

"The service you provide is invaluable and we could not do our job without it."

Secondary SENCo, December 2017

"Lucy took time to understand what we as parents, were concerned about and ensured these were fully addressed in her report. Our son thoroughly enjoyed his assessment, Lucy put him at ease, meaning we obtained reliable and accurate results."

Parent, May 2018

"Best thing we ever did for our boys! So helpful and easy. Lucy was great with them."

Parent, May 2018

"Excellent INSET which will help the way I teach in the future and also helped me to understand what I already do well currently."
