School Drug Policy
Wirral Schools Drug Policy:
All schools are required to have an up to date Drugs Policy and in Wirral, the 175 Safeguarding audit asks schools about their policy. To assist with this, please use the link below which will take you to the recommended Wirral Schools Drugs Policy Template.
The Template is endorsed by Wirral Safeguarding Children’s Partnership and was devised by the Wirral Schools Drug Adviser*, Barnardo’s, in partnership with 4 Wirral schools. It was developed in response to schools requesting a standardised document, to enable a consistent approach and response to any drug related matters in all primary, secondary and alternative provisions across Wirral.
The template can be amended to meet the individual school’s needs. It is applicable to staff, pupils, governors, parents / carers, external agencies and contains links to relevant national guidance, procedures on the management and response to drug related incidents as well as guidance on the delivery of appropriate drugs education.
*Schools can contact Lea Sloan, [email protected], Wirral Schools Adviser for further advice and guidance on policy, curriculum or any drug related matters.
