Our School Dog

Mabel, our school dog, is a Cockapoo. That's a cross between a Cocker Spaniel and a poodle (miniature in Mabel's case). She was born on October 15th 2022. Cockapoo's are known for their friendly nature and for being good with children. Because of the poodle in their breeding their coats are often non shedding and better for those with allergies to dogs. 
Her base is in the school office with Mrs Hancock but as she grows up and progresses with training she will be seen around the school and will interact more with the children. She will always be supervised, usually on a lead and children will never have to interact with her if they don't want to. Her role will be that of a Welfare Dog, and we believe that her presence here is beneficial for the children and staff.
