The City of Wolverhampton Council Educational Psychology Service is committed to supporting children, families and schools during the Covid-19 pandemic. Below we provide an overview of support that you can access from us and resources available online.
The Coronavirus is presenting many challenges for us all, with restrictions to normal life, impacts on social relationships, a new way of school and work life and uncertainty about the future. For families these include balancing work and caring for and educating your children, financial pressures and a loss of support networks as households must isolate.
We want to support families in the City of Wolverhampton with this and are offering support through the following ways:
- If your child has been referred to the Educational Psychology Service
Please feel free to contact their Educational Psychologist by email or telephone. If you do not have their contact details to hand please contact our team of administrators via email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 01902 550609 and they will pass your message onto your child’s Educational Psychologist.
- Links to online resources: The amount of information available online at the moment can be very helpful but it can also feel quite overwhelming. We have put together a selection of links useful and trustworthy resources below.
