Meet Mylie our therapy dog

Mylie our therapy dog in the grass

We are is delighted to introduce the newest and four-legged member of the Welfare and Development Team, Mylie.

Therapy dogs are shown to provide a range of benefits including:

Cognitive – companionship with a therapy dog stimulates memory, problem-solving and game-playing.

Social – a therapy dog provides a positive mutual topic for discussion, encourages responsibility, wellbeing and focused interaction with others.

Emotional – a school therapy dog improves self-esteem, acceptance from others and lifts mood, often provoking laughter and fun. Therapy dogs can also teach compassion and respect for other living things as well as relieving anxiety.

Physical – interaction with a furry friend reduces blood pressure, provides tactile stimulation, assists with pain management, gives motivation to move, walk and stimulates the senses.

Environmental – a therapy dog in a college increases the sense of a ‘college family’ environment, with all of the above benefits continuing long after the college day is over.

Safeguarding and Prevent

Safeguarding

We want you to be safe at all times: at Loughborough College, travelling to and from college, when you are out and about, when you are online and when you are at home. If for any reason you do not feel safe, or you know someone who does not feel safe please contact the College Safeguarding team on 07979 737474. 

This college safeguarding number is on the back of your name badge on your lanyard. You can call it anytime in between college opening hours. 

 

Prevent & Radicalisation

Prevent is a policy that requires people to be alert to people being drawn into potential extremist activities.

Radicalisation is a process by which individuals, often young people, move from supporting moderate mainstream views to supporting extreme ideological views. This process can occur online through exposure to and engagement with violent ideological propaganda, or offline through extremist networks. Radicalisation makes those at risk more likely to support terrorism and violent acts of extremism, and possibly even commit such criminal acts themselves.

If you feel you or someone else is in danger, or a threat to others contact the police or seek advice from the Safeguarding Team on 07979737474
