Brookhurst Primary School
A place to think and grow

Drug education policy

At Brookhurst we aim to provide opportunities for pupils to increase their knowledge and understanding of the risks and consequences of drugs – both illegal and legal – and appreciate the benefits of a healthy lifestyle, relating this to their own and others’ actions.

Our drug education policy clarifies the legal requirements and responsibilities of the school and reinforces and safeguards the health and safety of pupils and others who use the school.

Amongst other things, it clarifies the school’s approach to drugs for all staff, pupils, governors, parents/carers and the wider community, and enables staff to manage drugs on school premises and any incidents that occur with confidence, consistency and in the best interests of those involved.
