Dear Parent/ Guardian,

We are excited to inform you of a new edition to school, a corn snake that lives in the Science lab.

The aims of keeping an animal in the learning environment are to:


  • Motivate pupils to think and to learn, as young people have a high level of natural interest, enthusiasm and enjoyment of animals
  • Encourage a respect and reverence for life in pupils and thereby improve their relationships with other pupils, parents and teachers
  • Foster a sense of responsibility in young people
  • Teach young people to nurture and respect life
  • Lead to the development of hobbies / careers in animal care
  •  Improve academic achievement

The students will have the opportunity to hold and care for the snake, under experienced adult supervision, if they choose to do so.  If you have any concerns, or your child has any allergies, please contact the school.
