What We Do

At Tameside Educational Psychology Service we put children and young people at the heart of our service. We work with children and young people between the ages of 0 - 25 years of age. We are a relatively new service that was co-produced in 2019 with help from children and young people across Tameside and supported by Salford Educational Psychology Service.

Many children have needs within their development and learning at some point in their lives. Most improve with the help of their families, their schools and their friends. The Educational Psychology Service can offer additional advice and support when this may be needed.

The diagram below shows how we meet the needs and support the wellbeing of all children and young people across Tameside. We work through a process of assess, plan, do and review. We also work on different levels, including supporting with individual children and young people (casework), with vulnerable groups, such as supporting Cared for Children, and by providing projects, training, workshops and strategic work.

SEND Children Thrive – Matching provision to need

This resource was developed by the Educational Psychology Service in consultation with schools, settings and services across Tameside. The documents aim to provide a tool to support excellent practice across Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) provision in educational settings and promote positive outcomes for children and young people identified as having additional needs. This tool is reflective of the LA’s graduated response to SEND and embodies 2014 reforms, as it is collaborative, puts children and families at the centre, is transparent and it has a focus on outcomes.
 
We aspired to develop a resource that raised the standards of education and support for SEND children/young people through the sharing of best practice and known evidence-based interventions. The Special Educational Needs and Disability Co-ordinators (SENDCos) of the local area have contributed with the ways of working that are effective in their schools and settings (practice-based evidence).
 
It is our hope that through this collaborative work, SENDCos will be empowered to advocate for SEND children from classroom practice to points of provision and to help the wider workforce understand that support needs to be targeted, evidence-based and focused. Together we can ensure that SEND children THRIVE!
