Academies and academy trusts

HSR Psychology services are available to independent academies and academy trusts. We provide a progressive, forward thinking alternative to local authority educational and child psychology services. Our bespoke service gives academies and academy trusts the control to decide on the level of input received.

Do we offer service level agreements?

We provide work through service level agreements which gives the scope to carry out ongoing work which allows us to be involved in the ‘assess, plan, do, review’ process. Read about our school commissioned services.

What are the benefits of using HSR Psychology in an academy?

As an independent service we are not under pressure from external sources, allowing us to provide a fair, fast and specialist service. Benefits of using HSR Psychology in an academy include:

In addition to our school services, we can work directly with parents and carers in school and at home. Working within both settings improves home-school relationships and consistency. Our holistic approach helps children and young people to maximise their potential, making us a cost effective and worthwhile investment.

How can our service be funded?

Using our specialist educational and child psychologists in your school is a long-term investment with sustainable results. We demonstrate the impact of our involvement, ensuring we are constantly working towards providing an efficient and cost effective service.

Schools fund our services from the following budgets:

Element 1, 2 & 3 funding

Element 1 funding is provided to meet the needs of all students and is used to fund systemic work which benefits all students within your school, through training and other whole school approaches. Element 2 funding is also known as the notional SEND budget. This can fund specialist SEND systemic work, interventions, specific assessments and consultations, which benefit individual or multiple SEND students. Element 3 funding covers statutory input, interventions and equipment stated within education, health and care plans. Our clinical, educational and child psychologists can be funded by each funding element according to your needs.

Catch-up premium

Secondary schools can use pupil catch-up premium for literacy and numeracy interventions, groups or training.

Pupil premium

Pupil premium is available to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils to close learning gaps between them and their peers. Our specialist team can raise attainment through an individual, targeted and whole school level in order to make pupil premium funding stretch without compromising on the quality of service.

Looked after status

If your school has any children with looked after or adopted status then our specialist service can work directly with those children to support them in their learning through allocated funding.
