The School Mentor Dog - BOW
We have a school dog called Bow. She comes to school with Miss Smith on some days. You will see her first thing in the morning and at the end of the school day at the school gate, in assemblies, around school working with individual pupils and hearing children read.
Children can benefit educationally and emotionally, increase their understanding of responsibility and develop empathy and nurturing skills through contact with a dog. The pupils learn to stay safe around dogs and look after the dog's well-being. In addition to these benefits, children take great enjoyment from interaction with a dog.
You will receive a consent letter when your child starts school asking for permission to interact with the school dog. If you have any questions, please speak to the class teacher, trained Dog Mentor staff or Miss Smith.
