Educational Psychology in Scotland: Making a Difference. An Aspect Report on the Findings of Inspections of Local Authority Educational Psychology Services 2006-10
Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Education
This report provides, for the first time, an overview based on inspections of all 32 local authority educational psychology services. The picture it presents is broadly a very positive one although it also points to areas in which there is certainly scope for further improvement. The report shows that services are making a positive difference to the lives of children and young people in Scotland, particularly some of the most vulnerable. It has been seen that effective educational psychology provision can make an important contribution to meeting the needs of all learners through supporting families, schools, and education authorities in a wide variety of ways. The following questions are addressed in this report: (1) What key outcomes have educational psychology services achieved? (2) How well do educational psychology services meet the needs of their stakeholders? (3) How good is educational psychology services' delivery of key processes? (4) How good is the leadership and management of educational psychology services? Appended are: (1) Background to the inspection process; (2) Tables of stakeholders' views; (3) National performance and quality indicator evaluations graph; (4) Reflective questions to support self-evaluation and improvement; and (5) Glossary. (Contains 2 figures and 17 footnotes.)
