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).
Alex O’Donnell, Principal, Longfield Academy
"South East Psychology have worked with the Leigh Academies Trust for 6 years. Their service has provided 360 degree support from identification to report writing, staff training to intervention. Their work across the Trust has been invaluable to our Academy staff, ensuring that that the advice & guidance given is timely, constructive and has impact."

ELSA Training 3 November 2019
"I have really enjoyed this course for many reasons. Very engaging both the content and delivery. Good mix of video clips, direct information giving, group work, trying resources. Great venue, real treat to be so well looked after. A great group of people to work with."
ELSA Training 5 November 2019
"Helpful to set targets and discuss specifics of sessions in the group. Really useful to share resources / ideas. There was enough theory to underpin the sessions we will be running, but not too much to be overwhelming."
Primary SENCO May 2018
"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."
