Charlie, our Wellness Dog

We are very excited to welcome Charlie, our wellness dog, to the Red House family!

In assembly, children in both the Senior and Junior School met and welcomed Charlie, the black Labrador puppy, into school. Charlie is our official Red House wellness dog, and once he is a little older, he will be coming into school on a regular basis.

Before we welcome Charlie as a regular visitor into Red House, all parents will be asked for their consent for their child to be allowed access to him.

School dogs have been proven to help reduce anxiety, develop pupils’ academic confidence, increase their understanding of responsibility, develop empathy and nurturing skills, and provide companionship and a friendly welcome to school.
