A four-legged recruit to Stourport High School’s pastoral team is proving a big hit with students and staff.
Ned, a four-year-old springerdoodle, is being trained as a therapy dog to support counselling, reading sessions, outdoor activities and general wellbeing.
He goes into school three days a week and has been involved in lots of different activities, but will start working with students more in the new year.
Principal Jon Sheers said: “Ned has the perfect temperament for a busy environment and is making many friends across our school community.
“It’s well-known that animals, and especially dogs, have a positive influence on wellbeing and I’m sure Ned will more than earn his biscuits.”
