Leicester city psychology service provides a service for children and young people aged from 0 to 25 and is focused on children and young people who represent the following priorities for the local authority:
Educational psychologists (EPs) work in early years’ settings, schools, community settings and family homes. At Oaklands our Educational psychologist is Karleni Baines.
EPs have training in child development and psychology and work in partnership with parents, carers, setting/school staff and other professionals to support the development, learning and emotional well-being of children and young people.
All the EPs in the service are registered with the health and care professions council and have undergone an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check to work with children and young people.
