School dog - Luna
Luna is our school therapy dog in training. She is a 1 year old Labradoodle and is in school three days a week (Monday, Wednesday & Thursday). She works alongside Mrs Pascoe and Ms Ball in the ELSA area and Mrs Dodgson in HQ. Luna is often in the memorial garden at break time so students are welcome to see her there, but they need to keep this area free of scraps of food or litter!
Students are allowed to stroke Luna and she loves meeting them but please do listen to the trainer with her. Luna needs to be calm and ready before approaching her. She is still learning so when she needs a little bit of space, please respect this.
We are part of the CAL affiliate scheme - Canine Assisted Learning. Luna has a dog trainer in once a term to focus on our next training goals as well as to check on her welfare. We also have CAL in two days a week to run sessions with students with their fully trained dog, so we have a dog on site five days a week to support our students.
