This has been the 9th year we have been able to offer this fantastic ‘Tail Wagging Tutors’ programme here at BISP and the students were just as excited about reading to the dogs now as they were back when we started the programme.

Russell, from the Canine Point Academy, and his team give up their time once a week and bring their dogs into school so that the children can come in and read with them. The core objective is to provide a relaxed atmosphere, which allows students to practice their reading skills with dogs. The programme really does build excitement around reading, and many of the children previously involved have talked about going home and reading to their own pets!
