Welcome to SchoolBeat.cymru

SchoolBeat.cymru is a bilingual site from the All Wales School Liaison Core Programme, providing information and resources for pupils, teachers, parents and partners to reinforce the key messages delivered by our School Community Police Officers in primary and secondary schools as well as alternative educational settings.

The website focuses on the three main themes of the Programme: drug and substance misuse, personal safety and safeguarding, and social behaviour and community.

If you have any ideas about how the site can be improved, you can contact us here.

Officer Blog 6: Clare's Law

PC Hughes would like to share an important message about Clare's Law, the domestic violence disclosure scheme. Please share and help us raise awareness of the support that is available to those who are at risk of or concerned about domestic abuse.

If you or anyone you know are affected by domestic abuse please contact the Live Fear Free helpline 0808 80 10 800.

In an emergency call 999 and if you cannot speak dial 5 5.

The Police are here to help.

Officer Blog 5: Share Aware

PC Courtney would like to share an important message with parents and carers. The Covid-19 epidemic has brought with it many disruptions, with schools closed and many children being home-schooled.

Technology has helped us, but many of the challenges families faced online before the lockdown are still there – and some new ones have been introduced.

With so many children at home, it is more important than ever that we help our children to think carefully about their online behaviour.

Have a listen to PC Courtney’s top advice and if you are worried about online sexual abuse you can contact the Child Exploitation Online Protection team by searching for CEOP.

Please remember as the police, we are here to help if something goes wrong. Our focus will be on safeguarding the child concerned and helping to resolve issues. The Police can be contacted on 101, or 999 in an emergency.

Together we can help keep our children safe.

Officer Blog 4: Domestic Abuse

PC Skyrme would like to share an important message. Covid-19 (Coronavirus) will have a significant impact on the lives of women, children and men who are experiencing domestic abuse. The increase in pressures over jobs, finances, school closures, home-working and schooling are anticipated to increase instances of domestic abuse incidents during these times of isolation.

If you or anyone you know are affected by domestic abuse please contact the Live Fear Free helpline 0808 80 10 800.

Children can call ChildLine 0800 1111.

In an emergency call 999 and if you cannot speak dial 55.

The Police are still here to help!
