After half-term we will be introducing a cockapoo, called Arlo, will be joining our school community. He is a therapy dog and will work with our pupils to help further support them during their time at St. John Fisher. As Arlo is a cockapoo he does not shed fur and so is a suitable companion for anyone with allergies. Dogs have been scientifically proven to improve physiological and psychological health. Arlo would give our pupils companionship, love, affection and a non-judgmental friend to talk to. Arlo would also give our pupils additional responsibility, allowing them to learn about the care and husbandry of a pet. If your child is fearful of dogs, please could you inform the main office.
