Our dog mentors

We have two dog mentors who are called Teddy and Elvis.

The Dog Mentor programme has built upon the benefits of the human-animal bond  by providing children positive experiences with dogs that can help them:

  • Educationally

  • Developmentally

  • Emotionally

  • Socially

Why are the dogs in school?

To work with children and staff within the school to create a positive impact.  By working alongside the dog and learning how to become a good trainer,  both staff and children experience the values and techniques that help develop:

  • Communication

  • Self control and confidence

  • Discipline and Resilience

  • Empathy and Relationships

  • Focus and Concentration

  • Stress Coping Strategies 


The overall target is to improve the personal development for all staff, parents and pupils so that they are more productive in a positive learning environment. 


This will lead to greater achievements both at home and in school. 

More specifically:


  • raising standards and accelerate progress

  • improve the quality of teaching and learning across the entire school

  • improve the conditions for learning 

  • to improve skills such that the impact has a lifelong affect
