KS3/4 PSHE - Tackling Drugs



Discover how to give young people the knowledge and skills to enable them to stay safe in a drug-using world.

This programme focuses on Sally George, head of PSHE at Shoeburyness High School in Essex, as she takes a Year 8 drug awareness class. Sally has devised a range of resources for her 100-minute lessons to engage students of all abilities. She starts with some knowledge-based activities: a true/false quiz, a sorting game and a circle-time debate. But in lessons like these, difficult questions crop up.

The programme:

  • Follows the lesson from start to finish
  • Provides clear examples and ideas for activities and shows how they work
  • Examines how discussions develop
  • Advises on how to cope with difficult questions
  • Gives advice on how students can be guided to develop knowledge and skills to keep them safe
