Essex Educational Psychologists (EPs) provide independent professional advice to families and schools. They work with children and young people up to 25 years old. An EP applies psychology (the study of thinking, learning and behaviour) to support the learning, development and wellbeing of children and young people. Many Essex EPs have specialist skills in areas such as autism, behaviour and mental health.
The EP service has created a leaflet of key messages for schools working with parents and carers.
The EPS Vision, Mission, Core Values and Design Principles is also available to view.
Please refer parent enquiries to The Educational Psychology helpline

The helpline is open every Monday afternoon during term time from 1pm to 5pm.
The EPS have also created a Guide for Parents and Carers which can be found on the Educational Psychology pages on the Essex Local Offer.
