Meet Autumn the therapy dog
This gorgeous little puppy is Autumn, our new therapy dog, she is taking over from her mum Mabel, (also in the picture) who is currently on a well-deserved maternity leave. Autumn and Mabel are part of the Canine Assisted Learning (CAL) therapy programme, which is dedicated to improving the mental health, emotional wellbeing and literacy of young people through professional canine support.
Autumn and her owner Lisa bring so much joy to our school, they support students with strategies for staying calm, reducing anxiety and some students like to read with Autumn.
Students enjoy stroking and playing with her – enhancing their love of dogs or simply overcoming any fears they may have.
CAL therapy sessions take place every week, we will keep you up to date with their adventures and progress.
