Drugs and Substance Misuse
Drug use and misuse have become increasingly common in our society. Children and young people of school age are part of society and as such Chesswood Junior School recognises the need to;
- prepare and equip pupils for life in a drug using society;
- deal with the broad range of drug related situations and incidents which may occur in the lives of our pupils and others involved in the life of the school.
The overall aim of drug education at Chesswood Junior School is to equip pupils with the necessary knowledge, skills and attitudes to enable them to be in a position to make informed, healthy choices and decisions and to prevent or reduce the harmful consequences of drug misuse.
