Educational Psychology Service

Salford Educational Psychology Service works with parents, early years settings, schools and other professionals to promote children’s development and emotional well-being. We work with children and young people between the ages of 0 - 25 years.

Many children have needs within their development and learning at some point in their lives. Most improve with the help of their families, their schools and their friends. The Educational Psychology Service can offer additional advice and support.

Educational Psychologists (often known as EPs) aim to help others meet children and young people’s needs in an informed and inclusive manner. EPs are generally asked to become involved with children who may be experiencing some difficulties to help provide a clearer understanding of their strengths and needs, and look at ways in which we can best help the child to make progress.

How the Educational Psychology Service works

The above diagram shows how we meet the needs and support the wellbeing of all young people across Salford. We go through a process of assess, plan, do and review. We work on different levels, such as supporting with individual children and young people (casework), with vulnerable groups, such as the Virtual School Team, and with all young people via projects like Emotionally Friendly Schools.
