Educational Psychology Service (EPS)

The team of educational psychologists cover all schools and early years’ establishments across Stirling. The seven learning communities (consisting of early years’ provisions, primary and secondary schools) has a link educational psychologist. 

The Educational Psychology Service aims to apply psychological knowledge and skills to improve the emotional health, wellbeing, learning and development of children and young people. Our vision is:

Making a difference: using psychology to improve outcomes for children and young people


We are part of the Children’s Service and this means working with education staff and establishments, children, young people, families, and partner agencies who work with and for children. We offer a range of psychological skills, interventions and approaches, which have a sound evidence base. We believe that interventions work best when all of those involved with a child or young person work together collaboratively. More information about what we do is available here.

In order to practice as an educational psychologist, we are all registered with the Health Care Professions Council (HCPC) and adhere to the HCPC regulations and professional standards.

The following are some of the service’s planning and reporting documents:

We have produced a number of leaflets, which we hope will provide you with more information on what an educational psychologist’s role is, what we can help with and how you can contact us on 01786 237818.
