Drugs, Alcohol, Smoking and Vaping

Drugs, alcohol, smoking and vaping education is part of the compulsory health education curriculum for all state funded schools, following the introduction of statutory relationships, sex and health education in England in September 2020. In health education, there is a strong focus on mental wellbeing, including a recognition that mental wellbeing and physical health are linked. This includes teaching about the dangers of drugs and alcohol which teachers are supported to deliver with a package of teacher training modules.

Our resources section provides schemes of work and other resources to support the delivery of drugs, alcohol, vaping and tobacco education.
