Bury Education Psychology Service


Bury Education Psychology Service has set up a helpline on Mondays between 1 pm and 3.30pm and Wednesdays between 9.30am and 12.00pm.


This is to provide advice and support for schools/parents of children and young people with SEND. Within the context of the current situation that exists due to the Covid-19 outbreak. Educational Psychologists will be able to give advice on issues such as:


  • Anxiety, stress and related issues arising from being out of school/returning to school/COVID 19/missing friends etc.,
  • Loss and bereavement – EPs provide Critical Incident support, but the helpline may identify where this support is needed.
  •  Transitions – particularly for those children starting reception/year 7.
  • Advice on routines/behaviours because of changes to routine.
  • Reassurance/advice on academic progress and expectations once children are back to school.
  • Advice on EHC needs assessments and annual reviews.
  • Any other educational questions or concerns.


Parents/Carers are encouraged to call, no matter how small the question or concern is. 


The helpline number is 0161 253 6406.
