Taking action on smoking and health
There are many different factors that lead young people to smoke. The extent to which smoking is prominent and accepted in the environment around them plays a crucial part.
Consistency between what is experienced in the school environment and supportive smoke-free messages in the classroom is key.
Our new tobacco-free schools resource pack is linked to the Curriculum for Excellence and includes a range of practical tools to deliver high quality education on smoking, health and wellbeing.
All of our resources are designed to equip young people with the skills and confidence to make responsible decisions on smoking and their health and wellbeing.
Every secondary school in Scotland is eligible for one FREE copy of the resource pack. Email us with the following details to request a copy:
