On Friday 29th January Lynn came to talk to Year 1 about Guide Dogs for the Blind. She bought her Puppy in training with her. Her name is Ava and she is a beautiful Labradoodle.
Lynn showed us how she has to check Ava to make sure she is fit and healthy. Ava was amazing and let Lynne check her properly.
Next Lynn showed us how she takes Ava for a walk and showed us how she responds to her commands.
Ava also has to learn to wait and be patient. These are important skills for her if she becomes a Guide Dog.
At the end Ava was given lots of fuss and had a lay down on her special blanket.
We were very grateful to Lynne for coming in and thought Ava was fabulous.
The behaviour of pupils is outstanding…Pupils are proud to belong to the community of Hartley Primary Academy…Pupils’ conduct in lessons is exemplary.
Ofsted, March 2016
The standards at Hartley Primary Academy are exceptional. They have been consistently above average over time.
The school provides a caring and supportive environment to children and there is a clear emphasis on enabling children to be the best they can be — both academically and as “people”.
A quotation from a member of staff, Ofsted Report, March 2016
I feel really safe at Hartley Primary Academy…all the teachers and my friends are all around me.
