Dear Parents and Carers,
We are pleased to be able to inform you that from September 2022 we will have a school dog on site for some days during the school week.
Whilst the dog is in training, she may also be present on school site in the run up to September.
This has been fully risk assessed and parents are able to request a copy of the risk assessment via Mrs Bewes on the safeguarding email address.
If for any reason you would not like your child to interact with the school dog can you please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org , also if your child has an allergy to dogs can you please update their medical records with the school.
I have attached some below on our school dog, the benefits of having a school dog, and some questions and answers that you may find useful.
If you have any further enquiries, please contact Mrs Bewes on the above safeguarding email address.
Mrs S Bewes
Designated Safeguarding Lead
