Our School Dog

Benji, our school dog, attends Headlands for two days a week.  He is a Golden Doodle, a breed of dog that is known for its mild, sociable temperament and hypo-allergenic coat.  Some of Benji’s key roles are to ‘read’ with children, support and nurture individuals and small groups, encourage a willingness to learn, promote well-being and to have a cohesive effect on our school as a key member of our school. You will also see Benji in the playground when he is greeting children in the morning.

A risk assessment is in place for Benji and the policy regarding school dogs is available on request. We still adhere to our rule of no dogs on the school site and ask that you do not enter the school grounds with family pets.
