Strategic Consultation

Psychologists offered Cluster Consultation Meetings from January 2018 to June 2018.

This was a collaborative problem solving forum where the needs of children and the trends or themes can be discussed at a more strategic level in order to consider how we might respond in ways that have a greater impact. It has assisted us in developing our priorities for training and development work for 2018/19.

We will be consulting with stakeholders on how we can achieve the aims of this type of service delivery as we move forward.

The aims included:

  1. having an overview of the range and profile of Additional Support needs at a level beyond a single school to allow the EPS to prioritise its limited resources
  2. providing a forum for collaborative solutions to meeting children’s needs at a more local level to assist in developing shared practice and expertise in a community

The next phase could include the following options:

  • to continue with a modified form for cluster consultation
  • to offer strategic consultation in themed areas of interest, such as social and emotional needs or mental health needs
  • to offer strategic consultation with schools in ways more linked to closing the poverty related attainment gaps such as with “neighbourhood groups”

We continue to offer provide a service to the Children’s Services strategic groups.
