Services for Schools

‘The smell of an orange relieves stress. Smelling an orange or eating one can reduce stress by over 70%’

The model

The Orange Psychology model is based on the splitting up of an orange into two halves; schools get to choose how many ‘segments’ (e.g. days) they want for the two/three terms at a time. This is based on the premise that schools need a flexible, consistent and responsive service from their Educational Psychologist. We feel that this ‘mix and match’ approach suits school’s needs and allows them to get the best impact at the right time for them.

When schools buy as clusters, this enhances our ability to offer regular slots to their as well as allowing for opportunities for joint training and development within the cluster. Schools can also buy ‘top up’ depending on capacity within the team.

Mix and match

Orange psychology understands that;

  • Some schools find estimating need across the year difficult; school and pupil needs can change on a term by term basis
  • School budgets can fluctuate
  • Children with additional needs can arrive unexpectedly
  • Some schools have pressure to spend budgets before the financial end
  • Some schools like to get through a back log, and have less need in other terms

For this reason, schools get to buy two terms at a time with a dedicated review period organised up front. This affords maximum flexibility and effectiveness, see examples below;
