Meet Digby Birkett ... Our Nurture Dog

Digby is our Nurture dog and a very important member of our school staff.  He helps our staff and pupils with their mental health and emotional wellbeing, as well as their reading skills.

He visits school at least once each week and lives in Mr Birkett's office, usually on Tuesdays or Fridays. 

He loves to hear children read and to visit classes. Sometimes, Mr Birkett walks Digby with some pupil helpers too. 

He loves to visit the staff in the staffroom for a cuddle and a stroke (and the odd sneaky biscuit!).
