For the attention of Head teachers/SENCos and Finance officers of schools-maintained, and academy and colleges-primary/secondary/post 16.

The Early Bird Window for the Educational Psychology Service (EPS) Traded service from September 2024 is now open. This is the only time we can guarantee that you will get the time you purchase.

This provides you with the best opportunity to secure EPS support for your school at the best possible price. The Early Bird rate is guaranteed until May half term.

Trading allows you to access early intervention support for children and families, provides support with the graduated response and is a route to support staff through training, supervision and Continuing Professional Development.

In negotiation with your Educational Psychologist (EP) you can use hours flexibly – e.g. there is no need for a school to buy 2×3 hour package as they can buy 1×6 hour for a cheaper rate.

As well as the normal EP packages we have a new and exciting Assistant EP/EP package which includes both Assistant EP and EP traded time. This will provide a supportive blend of Educational Psychologist oversight with Assistant Educational Psychologist delivery to ensure high quality with competitive cost.

To purchase your EPS traded packages please log onto the SSE website and pick the packages you’re looking for.
