We are pleased to introduce Ruby the Dallimore Dog.
The school governors have agreed that we can have a dog to encourage children to read (there are studies about this) and for social and emotional well-being.
The risks of having a dog on site have been carefully thought out and we are confident that with careful and consistent management that this can be a successful and very safe initiative.
Ruby is still very young and will be kept under close supervision at all time.
Below there are two documents:
• The rationale behind the initiative / policy
• Risk Assessment
If you have any concerns or worries about this please do not hesitate to contact school and we will be pleased to discuss these.
