Educational Psychology Service
The Educational Psychology Service is part of Sheffield City Council's Children, Young People and Families service (CYPF). They work with families and staff in schools and in early years educational settings to support the education and development of children and young people aged from 0-19 years. Educational Psychologists help to find solutions to worries and concerns about how children are progressing, developing or learning.
They may see children/young people individually. They may meet them and their families at home or in other settings.
All Sheffield schools have a named Educational Psychologist who works closely with staff. Where there are concerns about a children and young people's learning, behaviour or psychological wellbeing, the first port of call for families will be to discuss this with school staff.
Work with Families
Educational Psychologists can be contacted by any local agency, with the parent/carer's permission, or directly by Sheffield families themselves for advice on a range of matters relating to children's and young person's development where these are not school-related.
The service may be able to offer helpful ideas, advice on strategies to try, and suggest where families may get further or more specific support, for example managing bedtime routines, supporting children where a death or family break-up has occurred.
