Our School Dog


Introducing ‘Maisey’ our school therapy dog and owner Steve.  Maisey is an 8 year old Springer Spaniel that has been working as a Therapy dog for a number of years helping veterans and families experiencing PTSD.  Both Maisey and owner Steve are certified in their practise and will be joining the Elm tree Team as part of a therapeutic intervention, spending time with groups and individual pupils across all areas of the School.

Maisey will spend time in different classes, listen to and encourage readers, provide regulation opportunities for children and also be a companion for all pupils across Elm Tree School.

Maisey’s owner, Steve Calderbank is a Child and Adult workforce counsellor who has a vast amount of experience working with people who have a range of need.

Both Steve and Maisey are a welcome addition to the Elm Tree Team and we are excited to start a long and happy journey together.
