The role of the School Psychologist
Mr Stanley Zammit
The school psychologist works towards promoting a healthy psycho-educational environment that facilitates the learning and overall development of school age children. This is achieved through the following:
- Discussion of concerns about a student’s development & learning with the student, legal guardian & school personnel.
- Identification of needs, psychological, emotional, behavioural, educational or social.
- Presentation and explanation of findings to the family.
- Supporting and advising regarding intervention, in collaboration with the student, legal guardians and school personnel.
Referral for the services of the school psychologist requires parental consent.
