Schools: Assessment and Support

Schools: Assessment and Support

Carter Brown recognise the important role which schools play in fostering children’s personal, social and emotional development, alongside their academic attainment. For many years, our educational psychologists have provided assessments within family court proceedings aiming to ensure that looked after children receive the support they need.

With a team over 150 experts, we’re able to provide educational psychology support to schools in areas where they most need it, whether this is in addition to local authority educational psychology provision or in place of this. We can offer targeted training for school staff in line with their learning and development needs, taking into account the demographic of your school population and its idiosyncrasies.

Services offered include:

  • Educational psychology provision within independent schools, academies, free schools, mainstream schools and universities
  • Training and support for teaching staff in relation to behaviour management, working with children with special educational needs.
  • Support and advice related to specific issues, for example, child bereavement or specific learning difficulties.
  • Advice on therapeutic provision within schools – nurture groups; we can advise extensively on working with children with social, emotional and behavioural difficulties.
  • Working with ‘looked after’ children – the role school can play.
  • Providing ongoing support and consultancy to schools (including groups such as those wishing to set up ‘free’ schools).

We recognise that schools are subject to budgetary restrictions and aim to be as transparent as possible with costs; ‘value for money’ being the ‘norm’ rather than the exception. Services can be purchased as and when needed or arrangements can be made to forge longer-term working relationships via a service level agreement.
