Exciting News!June

Posted by Claire Marsland Sun, June 10, 2018 19:48:30

Some of your children may have come home and told you that I am getting a new puppy, and that I am hoping that he will be able to come into school with me some days to 'hear readers' and provide some 'pet therapy'.

Well my puppy has arrived!

Leo is a four month old Kokoni crossed with a Jack Russell, so a little dog!

Appropriate risk assessments will be in put place and our Chair of Governors is supportive of this idea.

Leo has settled in at home very well today, and is indeed curled up asleep under the desk I am currently working at! I am hoping, all being well, that he will come to school for a short visit this coming Wednesday afternoon. Depending on how he reacts in school on that afternoon, I will bring him around to the classes to meet the children. We will then go from there to arrange his school visits.

An email will be sent out to parents on Monday 11th June containing this same information, and we ask that parents alert us by return email of any known animal allergies or phobias.
