Primary school pupils in Clevedon have welcomed a puppy to class.

Cocker spaniel Loki has joined Yeo Moor Primary School, in Kennaway Road, to teach pupils how to be more responsible, caring and thoughtful.

The puppy will also help improve children’s reading skills and be a friend to them.

Headteacher Roland Lovatt said: “Loki is a brilliant addition to our school.

“There are few things that have such appeal to young people in the way animals do.

“Strange as it may seem dogs can be very good reading buddies – young children will read very successfully to a dog.
