Morning arrival...changes

As a school, we are constantly reviewing our safeguarding procedures.

For a trial period, beginning Wednesday 11th October 2017, the front gate will be locked in the mornings, pre-school.

The gate will be opened at 8.40am for parents/carers to bring their children into school.

The main reception door will be open from 8.45am as normal.

Parents/carers bringing their children to breakfast club should ring the buzzer at the gate and identify themselves.

Dog allergies..

A letter will be sent out in the pupil post this evening, regrading dog allergies.

Bob is hyper-allergenic and does not shed hair.

If you need to discuss this further, then please contact the school office.

Bob has been in school for just over a week and has been a huge hit with the children and staff, not to mention the parents who have met him

Bob's first day at school...

The children and staff enjoyed meeting Bob for the first time today. Bob was on his best behaviour and is looking forward to joining us again tomorrow!

Meet BOB our new school dog...

This is Bob our new school dog. Bob will be trained as a therapy dog when he is older. I am sure Bob is going to be a fantastic asset to CVP! See our Twitter feed for more photos from yesterday, when we collected him.

School dog...

School dog joining CVP!

For a considerable time, we have researched the benefits of having a school dog.

Dogs are increasingly being used in schools, as well as hospitals and care homes in a therapeutic role.

We have chosen a Labradoodle. They are a breed of dog that are recognised for their mild temperament, hypo-allergenic coats and are widely used in therapy and support.

Research demonstrates many benefits of a school dog, including:
   Reduced stress
   Foster a sense or responsibility
   Motivate pupils
   Enjoyment and enthusiasm for animals
   Improved attendance
   Build confidence in reading
   Support vulnerable children

Our school dog will attend puppy school and we hope it will become a registered therapy dog in the future.

It is possible our new school dog may arrive later this week!
