We are the St. Mary’s School heddlu bach! The Heddlu Bach scheme is a fun and interactive volunteering opportunity for pupils aged 9-11 years old, supported by Miss Phillips. Heddlu Bach supports Gwent Police priorities, via participation in both educational and community environments. The children involved will develop confidence through many enjoyable experiences.
There are three elements to Heddlu Bach:
The children who are selected to become part of Heddlu Bach, are the 'Mini police-officers' for the school. Their role is to help tackle local issues, highlighted in group meetings, in their own community, working alongside local Neighbourhood Policing Teams, on crime prevention initiatives and taking ownership of the tasks.
By being a part of Heddlu Bach, pupils will become ethically informed citizens of Wales, through creativeness and learning. Pupils will build resilience and develop a successful and exciting future through collaborating with communities and the police.
