Student Support Services works with schools and preschools to provide support to assist them in meeting the needs of all children. The role requires the incumbent to participate in the implementation of a service model that supports the provision of integrated and targeted services to meet the needs of children and young people with additional needs.

The trend of increasing learner complexity is well documented in the literature. Increasing numbers of children and young people are being identified with complex learning difficulties and disabilities often with co-existing conditions such as autism and attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder. Increasing numbers of children are in schools who have difficulties arising from premature birth, have survived infancy due to advances in medical interventions, have rare neurological disorders and foetal alcohol syndrome. Behavioural issues are becoming increasingly more challenging and complex with a range of co-morbidity factors (including mental health) that require skills and expertise to identify underlying causes to better address the needs of the children and young people.

The Senior Psychologist is a member of an inter-disciplinary team, providing delegated line management, professional support and supervision to psychologists and provisional psychologists and working with children and young people with developmental, cognitive, social, emotional, behavioural and physical difficulties, and exceptional needs (including giftedness) and their families. The Senior Psychologist works closely with the Team Manager, other Senior Psychologists, psychologists, preschool and school staff, and parents to develop evidence based psychological interventions that include proactive, targeted and intensive strategies that can be adapted for learning and home contexts. This position will have a greater focus on proactive whole site and Partnership approaches. The role requires the recruitment, retention, induction and professional support, development and supervision of psychologists with a focus on meeting professional and service delivery standards.
