The team work with education, health and subject experts to create lively and interactive lessons for the students. The lessons tie in with the personal, health, social and economic (PHSE) syllabus for each school year. The learning covers the risks, dangers, temptations and challenges faced by young people. It also aligns with the current priorities within the Constabulary.
Over the school year, SBO’s will provide 500 hours of education to those in school years 6 to 9 (ages 11 to 14 years). The lessons cover topics including:
Drugs and alcohol
Antisocial behaviour (ASB)
Drug dealing (including county lines)
Each year, three bespoke lessons will be delivered to each of the school year groups. Two of the lesson plans are mandatory. The third is selected by the school to ensure that it’s relevant to local educational and community needs.
The Schoolbeat curriculum is designed to work with the:
PSHE curriculum (as specified by the Department for Education)
Expectations of OFSTED Inspectors
Gloucestershire’s Police and Crime Plan Priorities
