Bracknell Forest is a small, unitary authority accessible from London with good communications, an expanding population and opportunities to work in both urban and rural settings. The presence of multi-national, high-tech business brings relative prosperity; the community continues to work with the social legacy associated with the creation of a new town in the country, whilst the population grows increasingly diverse. The Council is committed to investing in schools, services and community provision, to enhance opportunities and environments for learning for all, to promote social inclusion, and to ensure the health, well-being, success and involvement of young people.
The focus of the Educational Psychology Service in Bracknell Forest is to ensure that it is equipped to offer schools, settings and partners optimal support as they tackle the challenges of social inclusion. The service is influential in shaping strategic direction and facilitating development in operational practice, offering:
- A Consultation based service to schools and others engaged with children
- Early Intervention and quality Assessment for the most vulnerable
- Psychological Advice, when required, and
- Research and development/project work, to the highest professional standards.
