A very special member of our school team is Lyra, our School Dog. Lyra is a Labrador/Flat-Coated Retriever cross who lives with Mrs Roberts. 

Lyra loves coming into school every Friday and is very good at helping children who felt anxious about coming into school in the mornings. She is also good at comforting children when they feel upset or angry and she enjoys her walks around the playground as children learn how to walk her on a lead.

She was named Lyra after the heroine of Philip Pullman’s “His Dark Materials” books.
