To ask the Secretary of State for Education, how many educational psychologists were employed in all local authorities in (a) 2016 and (b) 2017.
24 July 2017
The head count of educational psychologists reported as employed by all local authorities in England in November 2016 is 1,600. This figure will undercount the actual number of educational psychologists because only 64 per cent of local authorities provided data in the latest year. Information is not yet available for 2017.
