Aims of this policy
As part of their statutory duty to promote learners’ wellbeing, schools have a clear role to play in preventing drug misuse. The Drugs Education Policy has been developed with reference to Department for Education advice and guidance: DfE and ACPO drug advice for schools (DfE-00001- 2012) which is non-statutory and was produced to help answer some of the most common questions raised by school staff in this area.
The drugs education of learners takes into account the statutory requirements within the National Curriculum Science Order, the non-statutory framework for PSHEE at Key Stages 3 and 4 and the statutory Citizenship Programme of Study at Key Stages 3 and 4.
