Educational psychology


Our educational psychologists (EPs) work with children and young people who may have difficulties with their:

  • behaviour
  • communication
  • emotional well-being
  • health
  • language
  • learning
  • physical development
  • social well-being

We do this through:

  • individual child assessments
  • direct work with school staff and families
  • supervision of staff
  • staff development and training across organisations

All EPs employed by Thurrock Council are registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).

We always:

  • put children’s wellbeing first
  • promote equality and inclusion
  • work with respect for the views, cultures and values of service users
  • work with school staff and other agencies
  • use psychological models to make sense of situations and promote change
  • use evidence-based approaches and reviewing professional practice in the light of research
