Trinity Fields Police Cadets passing out parade

14th July 2023

This week the Police and Crime Commissioner for Gwent, Jeff Cuthbert was pleased to attend the Trinity Fields Special School for the school’s Police Cadet pass out parade.


Parents watched proudly as the young people marched through the school grounds and received certificates from the Commissioner to mark their achievement as Gwent Police Cadets.



Officers from Gwent Police NXT Gen team have been working with the school since 2019, to inform, enhance, empower and provide unique life skills to help pupils to become confident and equipped citizens.


Gwent Police Cadets were established in Gwent via funding from The Police and Crime Commissioner.


Following the excellent work in Trinity Fields, learners from Pen Y Cwm Special School, Crownbridge school and Aspris College now have the opportunity to become Police Cadets.


The NXT Gen team works with pupils to tailor the information provided at the Cadet Units across Gwent to their needs and abilities, ensuring they receive the same experience as their peers. 


The Police and Crime Commissioner for Gwent, Jeff Cuthbert said: “It was a wonderful day, seeing the pleasure on the faces of the pupils and their parents as their achievements were recogniased.


“I am proud to invest in the Police Cadet programme so we can help build good citizens of the future.”


Head teacher, Trinity Fields School, Ian Elliot said “I’m delighted to welcome officers from Gwent Police into Trinity Fields.


“Being part of the cadet programme has had a massive impact on the school and our pupils.


“It has taught them how to be good citizens, how to keep safe and it has broken down barriers between pupils and the police, helping them to understand that officers are there to help and most importantly how to call for help in an emergency.”
