Tobacco-free Secondary Schools - Resource

By aspiring to be a tobacco-free school, schools can support young people to make confident, responsible, effective decisions about their health and wellbeing. There are many different factors that lead young people to smoke and 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 reinforcing smoke-free messages in the classroom is key.

The resource was designed by ASH Scotland in consultation with teachers across Scotland and includes a range of practical tools and resources.

It has been split into two parts:

Part 1 - Guide to becoming a Tobacco-free School

Part 2 - Tobacco-free Schools Teaching Pack
