Clackmannanshire Council Online

Educational Psychology Service

Educational Psychology Service

We offer a weekly telephone consultation service time slot on Wednesdays from 9.30-12 noon, which is open to all. Call 01259 226000 or 455000.

Our Educational Psychology Service actively contributes to national and local priorities for improving outcomes across the levels of individual children and families, schools, and the wider community. In this way the council fulfils its statutory duties towards children and young people in the 0-24 age range.

Educational Psychologists work to make a difference to the emotional health, wellbeing, learning and development of all children and young people in Clackmannanshire. The services we provide are based on our specialist knowledge and training in evidence-based psychological approaches.

Education Psychologists work together with families, schools, and other professionals, contributing to the planning and delivery of:

  • Universal support to educational establishments, partner agencies and the local authority.
  • Targeted services, which provide additional support to children and young people who need it.

Nationally as well as locally, the balance of work for educational psychologists is increasingly shifting towards working with key adults most closely involved in the lives of children and young people - parents or carers and teaching staff - with less direct involvement with children and young people. However, there will still be times when individual and small group work with children and young people will be appropriate.

Educational Psychologists work to an agreed Code of Conduct, Ethical Principles and Guidelines laid down by the British Psychological Society. They are registered with the Health and Care Professions Council .

Scottish Attainment Challenge

Our service currently has a key role in contributing to the Scottish Attainment Challenge in Clackmannanshire.
