Smokefree 4 Me Programme

What is the Smokefree 4 Me Programme?

The Smokefree 4 Me Programme is a health education initiative which aims to prevent smoking uptake and encourage young people to make an informed choice to stay smoke free.  The Programme is open to all S1 and S2 classes across Greater Glasgow and Clyde.

Each school in Greater Glasgow & Clyde has been issued two printed folders of the resource and can download and print the pack to put in these folders each year as it is updated.

What is involved?

Classes can take part in the Programme in different ways depending on the interests and needs of the pupils as well as the amount of time available in class to undertake activities.  The Programme is split into five themes:

  • Theme 1:  Health Effects of Smoking
  • Theme 2:  Peer Influence and Decision Making
  • Theme 3:  Smoking and the Law
  • Theme 4:  The Tobacco Industry, Advertising and Promotion
  • Theme 5:  Tobacco, Poverty and the Environment

Lesson Plans - each theme has an accompanying lesson plan with background information on the topic, suggested ideas for lesson development as well as links to Curriculum for Excellence Experiences and Outcomes.

The Smokefree Pledge - each theme includes a Smokefree Pledge which asks pupils to pledge not to become a replacement smoker and to give a reason for this based on the themed classroom activities they have undertaken.

Newsletters - there are also newsletters for each theme which were been designed by W-WEST (Why Waste Everything Smoking Tobacco?), NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde's peer education and advocacy group.  The newsletters are packed full of information and activities for pupils.
