Our values - Educational Psychology Service

As educational psychologists (EPs) we strive to make a difference for children and young people.

In our team, the things that are really important in our work are:

Valuing all

We work collaboratively and we include everyone’s voices in a non-judgemental way.

Ethical Practice

We stand up for the rights of all and work together with integrity and honesty to achieve equity for pupils.


We are open-minded and curious, and work flexibly.


We believe every person is unique, including each EP in our team. We bring a range of skills, strengths and approaches to our work.


We believe everyone should be treated with understanding, respect and kindness.

We are sensitive to distress and are committed to try and alleviate or prevent it.


We work creatively to identify what is needed to help people develop and thrive in education.  

Making a difference

We are an agency of hope who work collaboratively to create positive change for children and young people.
