Wales Police Schools Programme is a collaboration of Welsh Government and Dyfed-Powys, Gwent, North Wales and South Wales Police which creates the role of Schools Police Officer, a dedicated point of contact for every school in Wales. SPOs deliver a nationally-reviewed bilingual curriculum of teacher-developed lessons for ages 5 – 16. We engage with all schools, including mainstream education, independent schools in Wales, schools supporting additional learning needs and alternative provision including pupil referral units and education other than at school.
Our Policies and Guidance
The School Crime Beat Protocol is the agreed policy of the four Police Forces of Wales for responding to reports of incidents in schools and supporting and advising schools in a safeguarding capacity. It sets out the goals of the Schools Police Officer, our restorative practices, what kinds of incidents can be dealt with on school premises and how we implement Home Office policy for dealing with serious crimes.
