Our Head is not an animal lover but has finally agreed that I can have a class pet in my mixed YR/Y1/Y2 class this year provided I have 'thought of absolutely everything including a full risk assessment' so I'm looking for some good recommendations of suitable pets and any ideas about the risk assessment please. I'm guessing I'd have to send out a letter to check for any allergies and, of course, I'd be taking the pet home at weekends and holidays. Do you think a rabbit (or two) would be a good pet for school? I've got a cat, chickens and ducks at home already but don't think any of them would really be suitable! Thanks for any advice.
