Information for Schools

Telford EPS works directly with local schools, nursery and colleges to support children and young people. Schools can commission our work by directly contacting the SEND team. As part of our support, a link Educational Psychologist will work directly within the educational setting.

Within our work with schools, we provide collaborative working with teachers and parents, regarding learning, behaviour, wellbeing or specific learning difficulties to help contribute to the school’s graduated response. This can take many forms but can include:
