Summercroft is delighted to inform you that we have registered for the Pets As Therapy (PAT) READ 2 DOGS programme, which is designed to give pupils opportunities to increase their confidence of and enjoyment in, reading.
We are proud to introduce our PAT dog, Skye. She is a beautiful 7yr old black Labrador. She and her owner, Mrs Jameson (mother of Miss Jameson), have been visiting Summercroft once a week since September and have already had a huge impact on the children they have been working with.
They have also had a massive impact on the whole school, when they led assemblies in KS1 and KS2. They promoted thinking and discussion about how to be safe with dogs, caring for dogs as pets and the important roles dogs can undertake as service animals. They also wowed everyone with some super-cool tricks!
Summercroft would like to say a huge THANK YOU to both Skye and Mrs Jameson for volunteering their time each week.
