Add To Cart

The aim of the four 'Keys to...' resources is to provide key sessions on important health issues that may be used in mainstream Primary and Secondary Schools and that are inclusive of children and young people with a visual impairment. All pupil/student sheets are in large font, with a FREE CD Rom included that will enable the pupils/students to increase/decrease the font as required.

Each resource contains ten key sessions covering aspects of knowledge and understanding, attitudes and skills development with activities utilising a variety of learning styles.

The approach enables schools to deliver the main aspects of drugs education as recommended by all the major guidance documents for schools.

'Keys to drugs...' for young people aged 11-14 years old.

The majority of young people do not use illegal drugs. However, use does increase from the age of 11 years upwards. A balanced, co-ordinated and cohesive programme of drug education is essential for young people at this stage. This resource provides ten easy to use sessions covering key issues about drugs following the ASK model: attitudes; skills development; and knowledge and understanding.

The resource includes the following sessions:

  • What do you know already about drugs?

  • How would you act in different situations?

  • What are the risks from using illegal drugs now and in the future?

  • What do you think of drugs and drug users?

  • What are other people's attitudes to drugs?
