Working with dogs

A unique feature of The Iffley Academy is our use of dogs.

We firmly believe that working with dogs provides pupils with many benefits, including building confidence and self esteem. Dogs are used to provide consolation, comfort and as a breathing space. Pupils can, accompanied by an adult, take a dog for a walk within the school grounds or sit with the dog for a few minutes in a quiet space.

Pupils cannot fail in any way in their relationship with the dogs: the dogs do not judge or condemn, and offer unconditional affection. Pupils learn the principles of good pet ownership and are given a sense of responsibility through their contact with the dogs.

We always ensure that our dogs have a suitable temperament and characteristics for working with a range of audiences.  Risk Assessments are completed for every aspect of bringing dogs into school and pupils are taught how to handle dogs safely and responsibly.

We do of course recognise that not all pupils, staff and visitors like dogs, may be afraid of them, or may have an allergic reaction to them, and this is carefully and sensitively managed by staff.

Dogs are supervised at all times by the owner or a nominated adult, and are handled consistently and safely.

In addition to the excitement of the casino, guests can choose to stay at the luxurious Riverwind Hotel. To us, that sounds like triple fun!. Lucky Niki holds a license issued by the UK Gambling Commission (UKGC), which means that the players from the British Isles are allowed to register casino online. I have sought to extract some of the highlights from these I have spent quite some time playing and gambling over at the Playhub Casino site, and as such invite you to read through my guide and review on that gaming site at which you are going to find a huge number of casino games and a massive selection of real time sports betting opportunities too.

The welfare and well-being of animals is paramount, and dogs are provided with ‘rest’ periods during the school day to avoid any risk of stress.
