Educational Psychology

Question for Department for Education

UIN 125990, tabled on 31 January 2018

To ask the Secretary of State for Education, pursuant to the Answer of 30 January 2018 to Question 125058, how many educational psychologists were employed in each local authority in each year for which information is available.

The attached table provides the number of educational psychologists (EPs) that were reported as being directly employed by each local authority in November 2010 to November 2016. The list excludes local authorities where EP provision has been outsourced or the provision has been shared with other local authorities. It would also be open to academies and free schools to obtain their own provision.

The figures may also undercount the actual number of EPs in England and do not provide a comparable national year-on-year series because it is based on a varying percentage of local authorities returns in each year (between 91 and 95 per cent).
