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).
ELSA Trainee 3 December 2021
I enjoyed the sessions and will miss coming to ELSA training every two weeks. I have already found it useful at work and at home.

"Best thing we ever did for our boys! So helpful and easy. Lucy was great with them."
ELSA Trainee 5 December 2021
I’m very grateful for the opportunity to be trained as an ELSA. It’s important that we have the right support to help scaffold children in their emotional journey through their lives. Thank you for everything, looking forward to keeping in touch and starting my role in full.

"Having the services of our own Trust EPs is extremely valuable to our students as well as staff. The EPs take the time to build a rapport with the students and their parents."
