How do I teach drug education to my secondary school students?

Ages 13-14 : Recreational drug use

This pack contains a variety of activities focusing on recreational drug use. It can be used in conjunction with our many other library packs on specific substances, social, legal and personal consequences to build a bespoke drug education programme for your pupils. Drug education is now a compulsory part of statutory Relationships, Sex and Health Education (RSHE) in England and also mandatory in Wales and Scotland. Parents and carers are not permitted to withdraw their children from these lessons. Care has been taken so the activities in the pack are interactive and pupil focused. Use this pack to explore this topic with your class with a comprehensive set of teacher notes and PowerPoint based activities that take the fear out of this topic for you and the students alike.

This pack contains the following activities:

  • What do you know about recreational drug use?
  • What substances should be illegal?
  • Why people reject drug use
  • Influences on drug use
  • OK or not OK?
  • Risks, consequences, advice
