Dogs on School Premises Policy

 

As we can not guarantee that dog owners will have full control over their dogs, we do not allow dogs onto school premises.

 

Bringing dogs onto the premises would pose ahealth and safetyrisk to our children and could be unsettling for many as they arrive and leave school. There are added risks of dogs fouling, dogs biting or showing aggressive unpredictable behaviour.

 

The only exception would be dogs for the visually impaired or hearing impaired.

 

Parents will be informed of this policy via:

 

-          The newsletter

-          The school website

-          Signs outside school

 

Policy to be reviewed:
