School with dog subject of TV documentary
A school in East London is the subject of a new TV documentary for its pioneering approach in teaching teenage boys who have been excluded from mainstream education.
Ian Mikardo High School has no uniforms, no detentions, and no punishments - but it does have its own school dog.
Head teacher Claire Lillis says the dog, McFlurry, has a "calming" effect, and can help bring barriers down in the school.
