About the role

This is an excellent opportunity to start your career or develop your skills within a supportive, dynamic, and well-regarded Educational Psychology Service which delivers a comprehensive and high-quality service for schools, families and children.

The Educational Psychology Service has developed a high level of commissioned work across the Borough, which has increased year-on-year. All of the mainstream maintained schools and academies in the Borough currently commission EP support from the Service. This enables – alongside statutory and other Local Authority core work – EP contribution to SEN Support level assessment and consultation, organisational support and intervention, and community-based projects. Members of the team each link with a relatively small number of schools and other settings, with scope to provide a range of support within them. There remains a healthy balance of pre-statutory and preventative work, alongside a statutory role. We are always developing our practice, and recently have been strengthening our work as a Service in meeting the Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) needs of children and young people in Harrow. This has included ELSA delivery, and joint working with our MHST and other partners.

We are a very positive, supportive and reflective team, which values individual strengths and interests as well as promoting team working and peer supervision. We offer thorough induction to all who join us as well as flexible working and continued professional development.

The Educational Psychology Service has a history of working very closely and collaboratively with schools and other professional partners including through co-location with: the S.E.N. Assessment and Review Service, Children and Young Adults 0-25 Disabilities Service, Community Learning Disability Team, Children’s Sensory Team, Autistic Spectrum Teachers, Portage Home Visitors, Virtual School, Youth Justice Service, and Early Support Service in Children’s Centres. We are based in high tech and newly built Harrow Hub. This facilitates time spent working together, connecting, and learning with each other as a team, alongside a mobile and flexible working culture (for example through remote and hybrid meeting arrangements). We have outstanding IT for our business needs, including access to digital assessments.
