Dogs on the Playground

Unfortunately we are seeing an increasing number of dogs being brought onto our school playgrounds and last week a dog fouled right on the ramp into the mobiles which a child then trod into the building! Whilst the majority of dogs are being carried, this is still not acceptable; we have had an incident previously where a child was bitten by a dog being carried by a parent on the playground. Although the dog was not vicious, it was nervous; the child wanting to stroke it was unfamiliar and its first instinct was to bite. 


School policy is no dogs allowed on school site. Please support us in keeping our children safe.


Thank you.
