Leicestershire Educational Psychology Service Programme

Leicestershire Educational Psychology Service Programme

Listening to feedback from last year's Wellbeing for Education Return programme, the Leicestershire Educational Psychology Service (LEPS) have designed a brand new dynamic and interactive approach to supporting schools via a series of coaching session across 6 themes.

A total of six sessions (one per term) last up to 60 minutes each will be delivered by one of the Educational Psychologists from LEPS and will provide an opportunity to;

  • Explore the lived experiences of school staff through group coaching
  • Use a psychological lens to unpick and reflect on pertinent issues affecting your school at this time
  • Consider next steps for schools collaboratively

The 6 psychological themes underpinning each of the coaching sessions are:

  • Exploring the loss and impact of COVID-19
  • Exploring the presentation and impact of anxiety
  • Understanding self-harm in children and young people
  • Nurturing resilience and motivation within school
  • Closing the gap for vulnerable children and young people
  • Looking back to look forward --> using a psychological focus of reflection and action planning
