Simon Wellman - Principal Educational Psychologist

I was delighted to join Telford and Wrekin as Principal Educational Psychologist and SEND Group Manager in October 2016. Alongside the Educational Psychology Service I oversee the Learning Support Advisory Team, SEN team, Portage (an Early Years Service) and have close links to Behaviour Support and the Sensory Inclusion Service. This has enabled SEND services to consider our collective approach to support children, young people with SEND, their families and educational settings. My previous experience includes work as an Educational Psychologist and senior management of an SEN team in a large local authority. It is exciting times for Educational Psychology in Telford and Wrekin as we work closely with our partners to redefine our offer focusing on early intervention, consultation and traded services.
