Our role is quite simple really: we work directly with children, families and schools to help them collectively learn, develop and enjoy life more so we can all be part of a stronger, fairer and more rewarding society. John Hepburn, Educational Psychologist and Company Director.
EdPsychs offer a fantastic service, being intuitive to schools needs, knowledgeable about the best resources and practices, as well as evolving their services to meet and improve the well-being of their clients. They offer very good value for money and I would be lost without the advice and provision I receive.
The reports we receive from EdPsychs are very thorough and detailed. They are very easy to implement, as the advice and resource suggestions are clear, the information is easy to transfer to local authority requests for Education Health Care Plans and to measure progress against.
John himself is extremely experienced in his field and an invaluable source of information, resources, advice, training for staff and contacts. He always strives to improve the services EdPsychs offer and he is visionary about the way forward for both Special Educational Needs and the future of his company. I cannot recommend EdPsychs highly enough.
The flexibility, skills and knowledge of the educational psychologist we work with from EdPsychs has enabled us to provide a truly comprehensive, personalised and holistic inclusion package across our school.
This year we commissioned two assistant psychologists (we had one last year), who provide SENCo support, run interventions, train up our TAs and evaluate the support on our provision map.
John and his team have ensured that everybody we work with from EdPsychs is highly skilled, adaptable and forward thinking. Through working with EdPsychs our inclusion provision has been revolutionised.
We commission an EP and four APs from EdPsychs. It's a fantastic service. They've worked on whole school ethos, developed a whole school reward and consequence system, refined entrance and exit criteria, run interventions and completed whole school training with teachers. We have weekly psychology training sessions and they've really changed the dynamics of the school. Thank you!
