Waterside Academy

As some of you may be aware, historically the school had a 'school dog' called Daisy, who was the previous Headteacher's pet.

As Daisy is no longer with the school we plan to 'adopt' a brand new 'school pet' of some description by sponsoring an animal from a zoo or local animal shelter (we are open to suggestions). 

The school would pay a small subscription fee to contribute towards the cost of caring for the chosen animal and we would then receive updates as to how it is progressing and growing. The animal would not actually live or be in the school but we will give the children the opportunity to choose what type of animal we eventually do sponsor and to hear about its adventures and life in assembly time.

More details to follow shortly...


POTENTIAL CHARITY PARTNER: Please let the school know how you would feel about us sponsoring an animal through the following organisation:


Blue Cross

We're a charity that has been helping sick, injured, abandoned and homeless pets since 1897. Pets help us in so many ways and they depend entirely on us. That’s why at Blue Cross we believe in helping pets because pets help us.

We help thousands of pets in need every month, providing veterinary care, expert behaviour help and find them loving happy homes, as well as advice and education for current or future pet owners and pet bereavement support. We develop lifelong relationships with pets and owners, providing quality care that is accessible and non-judgemental. With your support we can give back to more pets in need.

Pets change lives. We change theirs.

Our vision is that every pet will enjoy a healthy life in a happy home and we won’t rest until we achieve it. But we really need your help.

We care for around 40,000 pets every year but we know it’s not enough – there are many, many more out there who still desperately need us and we must be there for them.
