Pets as Therapy

We would normally welcome Raven and his owner Tony into our school each week to work with our pupils who may benefit from this type of interaction. 
Many children seem naturally comfortable in the presence of dogs and our teachers can use this special relationship to enhance literacy skills and encourage reading in a relaxed environment, with dog and child sitting together. This contact between dog and child encourages physical interaction which helps to put the child at ease. The dog acts as a non-judgemental listener and offers comfort to the child who may find reading difficult or stressful.
However, due to current restrictions, Tony and Raven are not currently visiting school. We hope to invite them back soon.
