The School Dog
Ozzy is our school dog at Yatton Schools. He was born on 20th May 2018. He is a golden-doodle and loves being with people!
Labradoodles are by nature gentle and friendly creatures and Ozzy is a very affectionate, sociable dog who continues to undertake training. He has attended school most days since September 2018 when he was just 4 months old and is a popular member of the school community.
Although Ozzy’s main place of residence is Miss Keeble’s office at present, he is available for the children to pat and play with under strict supervision at certain times of the day. Ozzy will be available to work with children who have special needs, suffer bereavement or who are upset in any way and in need of calm, comfort and space before being able to tell an adult what has upset them.
Children from both the Infant and Junior Schools have gained a great deal of enjoyment from having a school dog and we hope that Ozzy will become an established part of life at Yatton Schools as his predecessor, Lola, was. A full risk assessment has been prepared.
If you can help out at all by being a regular, volunteer dog walker during school hours please let us know. He is a very loving puppy and would be very grateful indeed!
Ozzy has his own instagram account where you can follow his adventures; Ozzyschooldoodle
Lola was our first ‘school dog’ who attended school most days since September 2010 when she was just 5 months old until August 2018 when she retired.
She is much missed by the children and staff and is very welcome to visit at any time.
