This page provides information for parents and carers, young people and children about how the Leicestershire Educational Psychology Service can support inclusion and learning, wellbeing, and positive futures for all.
Educational Psychology Helpline
The helpline runs every Wednesday from 9am to 11.30am. It is for all education providers, professionals and parents/carers in Leicestershire who wish to speak to an Educational Psychologist. Phone 0116 305 5100.
Schools and educational settings are able to request a consultation with an Educational Psychologist if they have concerns about the learning, development or wellbeing of children and young people in their settings.
To ensure that our service is able to support children with the greatest need, we work collaboratively with schools and educational settings to prioritise casework.
If you have concerns about the development of your child or you are a young person with concerns of your own, we would advise you to speak to school or college staff and the SENDCO in the first instance. You are also able to phone our helpline to discuss your concerns further. Please see details of the helpline at the top of this page.
We also provide psychological advice to contribute to the Education and Health Care needs assessment process.
