Education psychology - pupil information

What is an Educational Psychologist?

You are probably reading this leaflet because you have been invited to meet with an Educational Psychologist (often called an EP for short). Hopefully, the following information will answer some of the questions you might have about what an EP does and what might happen.

  • an EP will listen to any worry you might have
  • an EP will be interested in discussing what you enjoy doing and what you are good at
  • if you are finding anything difficult, you may talk about this with an EP and they will want to help

Seeing the EP - how does it work?

Usually, the EP will visit you at school, unless you’d prefer to meet at home or somewhere else.

When will I see the EP?

Usually, you can see the EP between 9am and 3:30pm, but an earlier or later time is OK if you’d prefer. Your school and home will ask you when would be the best time for you to see the EP.

How long will it take?

Usually, meetings last 30 minutes to 1 hour but sometimes they may take a little longer

What will we talk about?

Anything you, your school or your parents/ guardians would like to change or make better.

Who will be at the meeting?

People who may be invited are :-

you, the EP, someone from home and school.

Do I need to bring anything?

No, you don’t need to bring anything with you but some students choose to bring things that will help to get to know them a little better, for example information about a hobby or interest.

What will happen afterwards?

Usually, the EP will work out a plan with you to help with whatever you’ll have discussed. You will be able to agree with the EP who should share your plan.

Will I see the EP again?

Together, you will decide if it’s a good idea to see the EP again. The EP will be happy to answer any other question you may have.
