Early years and Key Stage 1 – 2

Animals and Us

Our enthusiastic team can visit your school for a very enjoyable talk on Raystede and pet care. The session will leave youngsters with the knowledge that they need to care for pets throughout their lives. Staying safe around dogs is also covered. Suggested donation £2 - £3 per person.

Key Stage 3 – 4

What’s your status?

With the increasing numbers of stray dogs being rescued in Sussex, particularly terrier types, the need to educate young people on pet care has become vital.

Our highly trained team will come to your school and deliver a session that is engaging, enlightening and great fun. The session is cross curricular with an emphasis on citizenship and PHSE related concepts. We can deliver multiple sessions in one day.

The session lasts approximately one hour and can be adjusted to fit your timetable requirements. It can be delivered on any school day and at any time that is convenient. We are currently delivering this workshop to secondary schools FREE OF CHARGE.
