It is a shame you only get little bit of information when planning for lessons. I personally would not buy resources.

I have used this for years 8,9,10 and found it very suitable as ours is a 'special' school for EBD, most pupils have very short attention span. The wording and diagrams appeal to the puils in all age ranges.

Too many drugs resources try to moralise, and that just won't wash with kids today especially at KS4. This has become my core drugs resource because it treats the students as intelligent beings capable of making their own decisions if suitably informed.

Teacher Testing Report

It looks at drugs from a different angle than usually explored and therefore challenges the pupils to consider a further aspect of this issue.

The breadth of areas covered is impressive and there are plenty of ideas to springboard different ways of approaching topics.

Photocopiable sheets are excellent as stimulus for discussion or as resource for pupils doing group work.
