Porthcawl Comprehensive School / Ysgol Gyfun Porthcawl

Jessie the Therapy Dog

We have a new member of staff joining the Ty Enfys Team!

Jessie is a trained and qualified Therapy Dog, specific rules will apply to her, as a member of staff. She will be on a lead at all times when moving around the school site and will always be accompanied by a trained adult. Jessie will also be fully insured to carry out her role thus allowing her to be on the school site. Jessie will not be allowed to roam the site freely so there will be no issues with toileting etc.

Due to Covid-19, we have a "no touching" policy for pupils at the moment, to minimise the risk of spreading the virus. A video will be presented to pupils in form classes with a little bit of information regarding Jessie and how to behave around her.

During the Covid-19 pandemic, children and young people have faced many challenges that have, in some cases, had a profound impact on their emotional wellbeing, resilience and confidence. We hope you will welcome Jessie into school, who will be available to support the pupils that need it most.

If you have any questions, please get in touch!
