Education Health and Care Assessment work carried out by the EPT on behalf of the Local Authority will be funded centrally. We also provide targeted annual reviews for CYP with Education Health and Care Plans who are transitioning between phase and those who are particularly vulnerable.

The EPT also now offers a number of EP Hub Consultation sessions to enable schools to access support and advice from an EP in a timely and efficient way. EP Hub Consultation sessions are available across the year at a number of locality and central locations. EP Hub Consultation sessions are free to Bradford maintained schools and can be purchased by other organisations. EP Hub Consultation sessions can be booked via Skills4Bradford.

Schools and other settings also have the option of purchasing Educational Psychology Team support in blocks of time to meet their own specific needs and priorities. The EPT offers a range of work aimed at promoting inclusion, psychological wellbeing and raising standards across the full range of age and abilities.
