  2. E-cigarettes and nicotine containing products (NCPs)

    Electronic cigarettes are battery-powered devices designed to deliver nicotine in a toxin-free vapour. These devices generally tend to simulate tobacco smoking. However, whilst many are designed and produced to look and feel like traditional cigarettes, others have different shapes and designs, and not all produce vapour. Whilst there is currently lack of clear information and regulation around e-cigarettes and non-licensed Nicotine Containing Products, this briefing paper sets out what schools need to know about these products, and their use among young people. …

School programmes that are integrated, holistic and strategic are more likely to produce better health and education outcomes than those which are mainly information-based and implemented only in the classroom. These Guidelines for Promoting Health in Schools identify the basic principles and components of this approach. …

Such factors include the need for student participation; a holistic approach involving parents, educators and the community; linking of policy, legislation and practice; the development of indicators on violence; and cultural sensitivity in addressing concepts such as the universality of human rights as part of a human rights-based approach. …

  7. Safer school formals: a guide

    The end of the school year is a stressful and exciting time for senior students. It is a time full of pressing decisions, preparations for the future, exams and of course planning for one of the biggest nights in the school calendar, the school formal/prom/deb. For same sex attracted (SSA) and gender questioning (GQ) students participating in end-of-year festivities may not always carry the same excitement. While many schools pride themselves on their inclusive and anti-discrimination policies, the rights of SSAGQ students can often be overlooked. …

  9. A whole-school approach to Personal, Social and Health Education and Citizenship

    Children and young people need support in developing emotionally and socially so they are able to use their thoughts and feelings to guide their behaviour positively and develop personal awareness, emotional resilience and social skills. This will enable them to enjoy and manage their lives, be effective learners and active citizens. High quality Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) and Citizenship help improve behaviour, attainment and inclusion, and promote health and well-being. …
