      Our core business is Educational Psychology, we believe passionately that effective Educational Psychology is vital to pupil and school success which is why we offer holistic, community focused psychology, designed to be embedded into your school community. We go far beyond simply assessing individual children and young people; we look at the whole school and home environments and build effective, long lasting, school improvements that raise the bar for all pupils, improving key measures such as attendance, learning capacity and attainment. In addition, our clients benefit from reduced staff stress, increased motivation within the classroom and significantly improved community relationships with parents and carers.

      We also understand that every school is different, which is why we offer our services in a variety of ways. Our Focus 10, Focus 18 and Focus 36 packages are designed for schools (or school groups) that wish to fully embed our approach within their school community. With these packages we visit your school on a regular basis throughout the year for a whole day at a time enabling us to build strong foundations and personal relationships with your staff, pupils and parent\carers.

    • Consultancy (5)

      Our staff and associates can bring a wealth of experience and practical approaches to the education sector, both within schools, within community groups and within Local Authorities. We have worked with many organisations within the public sector, providing individual experts into short term, strategic roles. Unlike standard agencies we can deliver one of our existing, integrated team members to support your medium and long term planning goals.

      We offer this service only in areas where we already have an active presence within the local school community and the individuals we supply remain active within our primary service delivery. This approach ensures that our advice and strategic guidance is driven directly from an understanding of your communities' front line practice and it is this unique ability that sets FocusPsychology apart from other 'executive search' agencies.

      Together with our sister organisation, FocusTransformation, we can deliver expertise not only in the areas of Social Care, Education and Safeguarding but also in areas such as Information Management, Organisational Change and Technology Strategy

      We have advised Local Authorities and other public sector bodies in the following areas and roles:

      • Interim Principal Educational Psychologist (PEP)
      • Behavioural Support Strategy
      • Children & Families Bill/SEN/EHC Plans
      • Lead Enterprise Architect
      • Organisational Change Programme Manager
      • Interim Technology Integration Strategy Manager
      • Strategic Roadmap for Education Development
      • Technology investment strategy

      We are happy to discuss the skills we can bring to your organisation, please contact us to arrange a meeting. We are not an agency, if we do not have the skills you require, we will tell you, all our strategic advisers either work directly for us or are associates that work closely with us. All our strategic advisers contribute to the wider goals of FocusPsychology and are active in our community psychology efforts.
