Our School Dog!

Meet our newest member of staff: Rosie Randell, our school dog! 

Why have a School Dog?

Children can benefit educationally and emotionally, increase their understanding of responsibility, respect, kindness, love, friendship and develop empathy and nurturing skills through contact with a dog. In addition to these benefits, children take great enjoyment from interaction with a dog.
