At Ropley we are extremely fortunate to be visited by Teazel Dog, who is a registered PAT dog.  Teazel has been trained to be a reading dog, a scheme that has been offered nationally by Pets As Therapy since 2011.  The value of Read 2 Dogs is in its simplicity.  Many children seem naturally comfortable in the presence of dogs and by using this special relationship it can enhance literacy skills by encouraging reading in a relaxed environment, with dog and child sitting together.

Our children (and staff!) love Teazel and look forward to her arrival every week, regardless of whether they are reading or not!
