What are consultations?

Educational psychology consultations are 50-minute sessions that can be used for collaborative problem solving and support for:


  • an individual child/young person – if there are concerns around progress in learning, social interactions, emotional presentation or any other area of Special Educational Needs. It is helpful to invite the parents and include the pupil in these consultations.
  • a group/class – if there are concerns about group dynamics, how to plan for differing needs across a group, or explore interventions for a particular area of need
  • an aspect of your role – if you want a space as a SENCo, senior leader or mental health lead to reflect on the emotional or work pressures of the role and explore next steps
  • an area of need in the school – if you would like support for strategic planning around e.g., literacy provision, well-being, inclusion


The intended outcomes of participating in a consultation are to have more clarity and shared understanding of a situation, and ideas on next steps to take. A short record of the consultation will be provided as evidence of discussion and action.
