We are happy to introduce our new member of the school community – Mabel, who will be a visiting dog for the school.  

Mabel will be coming in to school for short periods of time on a weekly basis.  Her vet has confirmed that she is in good health, is fully vaccinated, has a lovely nature and is an ideal visiting dog for the school.  

Studies have shown that the presence of companion animals can improve the well-being of children and lower anxiety levels, simply by making the environment happier and more enjoyable. 

Other benefits include: 

Mabel will always be on a lead and any parent who does not wish their child to interact with the dog, is invited to contact the school.   

A full risk assessment has been completed and is available for viewing on request.
