Abstract

This article describes the response of an Educational Psychology Service (EPS) to a marked increase in requests from their Local Authority (LA) for statutory advice reports. A working party was developed to consider how educational psychologists (EPs) might write statutory reports for the LA in a time-efficient manner, without compromising the quality of the advice given. The working party met during the 2015–16 academic year, in which the psychological advice format was streamlined, piloted and eventually launched. The article concludes with some reflections on the wider issues that arose from discussions within the working party and, in particular, the impact of increased statutory demands on other aspects of EP practice.
