“Drugs” refers to all types of drugs, including medicines, volatile substances, alcohol, tobacco and illegal or controlled drugs. As part of their pastoral responsibilities, schools have a role to play in preventing the misuse of drugs. Drug education is, therefore, an important part of the curriculum for all schools. It must be relevant and appropriate and must also match the needs of the pupils by taking account of the school’s social and demographic context.
Schools should have in place a clearly defined policy and procedure for responding to drug-related incidents, especially if they have boarding pupils.
