Further Information

Are you an Educational Psychologist who has a passion for supporting children and young people who have social, emotional and/or mental health needs and who may also have additional special educational needs? Do you wish to be part of developing a new approach to help pupils have their needs met successfully and flourish within mainstream settings?

We are looking for an innovative, dynamic and highly motivated Educational Psychologist to have a central role in the development of Stockton’s new Pathway Development Centres.

Following a recent review of the provision available in Stockton for children who are at risk of or have been permanently excluded, in September 2020 we will be launching our Pathway Development Centres (PDC) in KS1 and KS2, with plans underway for PDC provision to also be available in KS3 and KS4 in the Autumn Term.

This role will be key in supporting the PDCs to identify and meet the needs of the pupils who are placed there and be instrumental in helping to determine the most appropriate package of support and pathway to enable them to achieve their aspirations.

The successful candidate will be dedicated to working with PDCs across KS1, KS2 and KS3. Duties will include assessing pupils placed in PDCs, attending key review meetings as part of a 12-week process and providing written and verbal feedback and reports. The role will also require the successful candidate to be able to deliver CPD and help to support the transition of the child or young person into their next setting.
