Drug and alcohol education lesson plans and resources for pupils with SEND

The PSHE Association are launching drug and alcohol schemes of work for pupils with SEND, developed for Public Health England. This resource pack includes three lesson plans and resources for pupils aged 7-11 and three for pupils aged 13-15, as well as a comprehensive teacher guidance document.

Suitable for pupils with SEND in both special and mainstream settings, these materials explore the facts, laws, risks and consequences associated with drug and alcohol use, as well as the dangers of household products and prescribed medications. Your pupils will be equipped to manage influences and pressure, and given the knowledge, understanding, skills and strategies to stay healthy and safe.

The lessons address explicit drug and alcohol education included in the PSHE Association Planning Framework for Pupils with SEND and the DfE statutory guidance for Relationships Education/ Relationships and Sex Education and Health Education (RSHE).

Materials are free for everyone to download in PDF format, with additional PowerPoint versions available exclusively to members of the PSHE Association, complete with:

  • Teacher-only slides with clear guidance notes to support you through lesson delivery
  • Pupil-facing slides to support engaging lessons
