Sarah Barratt


I am new to East Lothian and to Scotland. I relocated from South Africa to Scotland in July 2018. Initially I qualified as a Primary School teacher, but I have had the opportunity to work with learners from the ages of 6 to 18 years of age in a variety of educational settings.

Psychology combines my love of working with children with a renewed appreciation for the child in context and the need to provide learners, their families and teachers with care and support.

As an educational psychologist in South Africa I have had extensive experience working in disadvantaged, very under resourced contexts and I have learnt over the years that humility and the capacity to make the individuals and families I serve feel cared for, is of the utmost importance.

I look forward to learning about the Scottish system and partnering with schools and families in support of the children in East Lothian.
