Our Educational Psychologist is Ms Lindsey Thomson.
Our educational psychologists make visits to our schools regularly. Their role is to assist and help children experiencing barriers to their learning, by providing advice and consultation, through working with teachers, staff and parents.
The educational psychologist can be involved in consultation around general issues that may arise regarding particular children.
The educational psychologist will not undertake formal assessment, or meet with your child, without your prior consent and this will be discussed with you by the school.
Where consent is given, the school will keep you up to date with the support on offer, anyneeds that are identified and the educational psychologist’s role in supporting your child. Other school staff may become involved in supporting your child and, again, this will also be discussed with you as part of the process.
Ms Thomson can be contacted via the school office.
