Schoolbeat: Gloucestershire Police Schools Unit

As a team, we have worked with the Gloucestershire Police Schools Unit in the past, producing many resources including 'Getting Court', 'Price of Parenting' and 'Toxic Tobacco Truths' in most recent years.

We have worked closely with them to deliver training in schools on Drugs Education, Bullying and more specifically Cyberbullying. The Police Schools Unit have been consulted in the production of the 'Alcohol: Who would risk it?' resource launched in March 2012, and have been a valuable partner to the team.

The Child Exploitation & Online Protection Centre (CEOP) presentation and information pack of 'Think U Know' is now available for Schools. The 30 minute presentation is ideally suited to a Year 8 and Year 9 audience and can be presented to whole year groups.

Topics such as gaming and social networking sites are discussed and video clips shown. Information and advice about staying in control and reporting abuse are examined.
