Mr Kevin Mackelworth
Educational Psychologist

I am an independent consultant educational psychologist who works for EdPsychs Ltd. I am registered as a Practitioner Psychologist with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). I have been working closely with Bengeworth CE Academy for 2 years.

I encourage positive development and well-being of pupils within the school. I work with pupils who may have a potential barrier to their learning or general social and emotional development. My work involves classroom observations, and consultations with staff, parents and other professionals who work directly with pupils within the school. The purpose of these consultation meetings is to engage adults in collaborative discussions about how to remove barriers to learning and develop strategies to support the inclusion of pupils with additional needs within lessons.

I also undertake individual assessments with pupils to build up a profile or their strengths and areas of need. These assessments are used to inform recommendations for interventions and support. I work closely with the school Inclusion Leader and other members of the school senior leadership team to identify priorities for staff professional development and provide termly staff training sessions for both class teachers and support staff.

For more information of my role within the school, please contact the school Inclusion Leader Rachel Seneque
