At Les Voies we are lucky to have the support of therapy dogs who play an important role in our school. Therapy dogs in the classroom can be used to calm fears, relieve anxiety, and teach skills.

 

Currently we have 1 'in training' therapy dog named Luna. Therapy dogs are highly trained (in accordance with the 'Dogs in School' education policy), by Paws for Support; a locally run charity with the aim of using therapy dogs to improve the lives of many.  ​

In class and on school outings our therapy dogs:

  • Are available to encourage a calm and more focused atmosphere

  • Help calm some young people who are feeling stressed 

  • Always brings a smile and a positive greeting 

  • Teach responsibility and care for other living things

  • Have become effective classroom management tools

Please access Paws for Support website for more information on the use of therapy dogs in school and the wider community.

The therapy dogs mean a lot

to the students at Les Voies!
