Barnsley Educational, Child and Community Psychology Service

Barnsley Educational Psychologist's will 

  • Identify strengths within the child or young person and the education setting in order to build on what is working
  • Actively apply psychological theory to understand needs
  • Apply research and evidence-based practice to identify strategies and approaches that best meet need
  • Co-construct and agree outcomes based on the aspirations of the child or young person and their family
  • Seek and engage the child or young person’s views and enable their voice to be heard and inform decision making
  • View the situation differently and promote the possibility of change to facilitate removal of barriers to inclusion
  • Promote problem solving through conversations where we listen, empathise and positively reframe challenges
  • Reflect on purpose of our involvement to ensure that decisions in relation to ‘assessment’ are child centred and based on information gathered.
