Following a recent incident, we would ask all parents to ensure that if they need to bring a dog, that it is kept well away from the events and on a lead at all times.
For reasons of safety we are telling pupils that they may NOT be given responsibility for dogs and allowed to take them on walks in the sports field as both children and dogs can easily become overexcited.
