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: Tackling Knife Crime

Our adivce for young people:
For parents and teachers:

Our SchoolBeat Officers have advice on young people living knife free. Our key messages:

  • Carrying a knife does not make a person safer, it places them at greater risk
  • Our communities are safer when we choose not to carry weapons
  • Fearless.org is an anonymous service where you can report someone who carries a knife

Officer Blog: Anti-Social Behaviour

You can get help online by contacting Childline or Meic Cymru who will look to guide and support.

Fearless.org is another way to seek help. Contacting Fearless is totally anonymous and their online service means that a person can report any crime or concern they may have. They will not take any personal details and the person reporting cannot be traced.

Please remember the police are also there to help if something goes wrong. The Police can be contacted on 101, or 999 in an emergency.


Officer Blog: Hate Crime

It’s National Hate Crime Awareness Week and our SchoolBeat Officer Blog is taking some time to talk about the most important points.

School Community Police Officers are there to help pupils who are victims of hate crime, and help schools deal with discrimination and prejudice.

Our communities are better and safer when we treat each other with respect.

You can get help online by contacting Childline or Meic Cymru who will look to guide and support.

Fearless.org is another way to seek help. Contacting Fearless is totally anonymous and their online service means that a person can report any crime or concern they may have. They will not take any personal details and the person reporting cannot be traced.

Please remember the police are also there to help if something goes wrong. The Police can be contacted on 101, or 999 in an emergency.
