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 works with the children who access our nurture room every Monday morning and helps the children with their learning. 

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!).
