Rise Above for Schools from Public Health England provides free PSHE resources that support secondary school teachers when promoting positive health, wellbeing and resilience among young people aged 11 to 16 (Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4).
Use this lesson plan, PowerPoint and accompanying videos to explore with your class the reasons why some young people choose to drink alcohol, and the impact this can have on their health, wellbeing and overall lifestyle.
Using peer-to-peer discussion, scenarios and videos, students will be encouraged to identify and assess the risks associated with underage or irresponsible drinking, and how to deal with pressure from peers.
This resource provides a set of lessons for each year group at key stages 3 and 4 to support the teaching of a variety of issues within Drug and Alcohol education.
