Drug and alcohol education guidance for school governors

Five questions to ask about drug and alcohol education in your school

Drug and alcohol education is now a statutory Health Education requirement and plays a key vital role in delaying first substance use, reducing harm, and preventing the development of harmful patterns of substance use in adulthood.

We have developed new school governor guidance for Public Health England, structured around five key questions school governors should ask about drug and alcohol education in their school:

  1. How does our PSHE education programme equip pupils to stay healthy, safe and manage risks in relation to alcohol and other drugs?
  2. Are we covering statutory content in relation to alcohol, tobacco and other drugs?
  3. How does effective drug and alcohol education contribute to school inspection evidence?
  4. How does our drug and alcohol education support the pastoral system and whole school policies?
  5. How can school governors best support this area of school life?
