Substance Misuse - Key Stage 1&2
New drug and alcohol education suite arriving in September 2020 — map to your scheme of work now
The lessons have been designed to address all the explicit drug and alcohol education included in the PSHE Association Programme of Study and the Department for Education (DfE) statutory guidance for Relationships Education/ Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) and Health Education.
To allow you to plan these into your schemes of work for the new school year, we've developed tables which map the lesson content against the relevant learning opportunities from the PSHE Association Programme of Study’s core themes at each Key Stage. They also identify where content from the DfE statutory guidance for Relationships Education/ Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) and Health Education is addressed through the lessons.
