Referrals to the Educational Psychology Service (EPS)

Individual pupils are mainly referred to an educational psychologist through the In School Review (ISR). This meeting provides an excellent opportunity for the EPS to be involved in addressing the needs of many pupils who are a cause for concern.

Pupils are also referred to us when they are being assessed for an Education, Health and Care Plan of their Special Educational Needs, as agreed by a special panel known as the Decision Making Group. This is called the Statutory Assessment Procedure.

Parents who are concerned about their child’s educational progress should discuss this initially with the class teacher, the school's Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO) or the head teacher.

Should the pupil continue to experience difficulties, the SENCO may decide to raise the pupil's name for discussion at the next ISR.
