Pets as Therapy

We are now very lucky to have partnered with Pets as Therapy (PAT), who are a national charity, in order to have our very own real life Reading Dog called Henry who comes to visit us in school!


PAT Teams who visit schools can help to raise a pupil's reading standard, boost their self-confidence, improve concentration levels and behavioural problems. The visits can have a positive impact on a child's educational, social and emotional welfare. 

As part of the Read2Dogs scheme, Henry will be working with some children every week in order to improve their literacy skills and encourage confidence and concentration in the classroom. Reading a story aloud to a PAT Dog, a great non-judgemental listener, helps young people to enjoy the reading experience. They look forward to spending time with their four-legged friend, which in turn creates a bond of trust, empathy and understanding of the needs of the pet.
