School Psychology Service

Our School Psychologist, through the School Psychology Service – Department of Education, provides specialist consultation, intervention and assessment services for schools. This service helps schools to meet the academic, behavioural, social and emotional needs of students. 

All School Psychologists hold registration with the Australian Health Practitioners Regulation Agency and are governed by a code of ethics.

The service supports schools in three main areas:


    • Working with students, parents and the school to identify and change target behaviours at the individual, group and systemic level.


    • Conducting assessments of students experiencing learning difficulties and/or disabilities at school

    • Supporting the school in making appropriate curriculum adjustments for students in order to enhance the child’s learning outcomes.

    • The School Psychologist is also involved in whole school programs as well as teacher policy development, staff training and student workshops.

Mental Health and Wellbeing

    • Providing direct support for students experiencing mental health and wellbeing difficulties.

    • Assisting the school and children to maximise the development of positive mental health and wellbeing.

The School Psychologist can also be involved in the referral process to specialist services. An interagency partnership exists to support students in the school.

Accessing the School Psychologist

Our school psychologist is employed by the South Metropolitan Education Region and is allocated to our school three days a week.  They work closely with the school administration and teachers.

School Psychology Service referrals are made by the classroom teacher or a deputy principal or the principal. If you have concerns about your child, please speak to your classroom teacher.

Under the direction of our Principal and following a school-based referral process, parents of referred students will be contacted to provide consent for the school psychologist to engage with and provide support for their child.
