Meet Daphne – Our Therapy Dog

Each week, we receive a visit from Daphne who is a certified therapy dog from the charity Pets As Therapy (PAT).

Daphne provides our learners with emotional support to develop their wellbeing, engagement and communication skills. Daphne has a wonderful temperament and enjoys cuddles and affection from the students that she spends time with.

Our young people take Daphne for walks around our school grounds, give her treats, speak to her in order to develop their confidence and overcome their anxieties. The sessions have allowed many of our learners to break down barriers to communication and express themselves with confidence. They give our learners a time to regulate their emotions and take a bit of time away from the classroom to relax and focus on their wellbeing.
