SchoolBeat.org is a bilingual site from the All-Wales School Liaison Core Programme, providing information and resources for teachers, pupils and parents to follow up on the lessons provided to primary and secondary school children by our School Community Police Officers.

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


Jessie is a trained Therapy Dog. She is on a lead at all times when moving around the school site and is accompanied by a trained adult. Jessie is fully insured to carry out her role, thus allowing her to be on the school site. Jessie is not be allowed to roam the site freely so there will be no issues with toileting etc.

Pupils and staff have welcomed Jessie into school, and her support has helped our pupils that need it most. She has already had a profound impact on the emotional wellbeing, resilience and confidence of our pupils.
