About the Educational Psychology Team
"We apply psychological knowledge of child development, learning and behaviour to promote the positive development of, and improve outcomes and wellbeing for, children, young people, families and organisations."
What We Do
We conduct regular consultations and problem solving sessions with teachers, parents & carers and a range of other professionals to explore any barriers to pupils' learning and wellbeing in order to create positive outcomes for all. Each psychologist has responsibility for a cluster of schools and we offer a regular school visiting programme. The number of visits allocated is dependent on the size of the school and level of need. Access to our core EP service is through schools. We also cover schools offering specialist provision to pupils within the authority. Please see the list of specialist provisions in Neath Port Talbot . We offer a range of services including: Consultation, Assessment, Observation, Training, Therapeutic Work and Research and Policy Advice.
Meet Our Team
We are a core team of 6 educational psychologists (EPs) working in each and every school across Neath Port Talbot. We are all registered practitioner psychologists with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). In addition, educational psychologists work within the Flying Start Team (2.5FTE) and also the Looked After Children Education Services (1 FTE). These EPs do not add to the level available to the core service.Click here to find your educational psychologist
