This is one of three sets of materials available to supplement and extend I Wish I'd Known. This pack is designed specifically for teachers and school staff, and includes information about the risks of drugs and the law, the challenges of adolescent decision-making and communication, with practical strategies and information about the signs of drug use.

The materials here extend this to consider ways in which all this important information, understanding and development of skills can be embedded across the curriculum, what evidence-based drug education should look like, what to consider when writing a drug policy and how the wider school community can be harnessed, supported and involved.

You will be able to access this title online, or download it to the John Murray Learning Library app. Please note you will not be able to save the files to your computer.

Fiona Spargo-Mabbs was a manager in adult education, including Family Learning, and family literacy, for her local authority when her son Dan died. She is now considered one of the leading experts in drugs education in the UK, and her influence is growing steadily. She, and the Daniel Spargo-Mabbs Foundation, are involved in an ever-increasing number of strategic projects nationally, and she has appeared in the media many times over the years. Fiona has led on the development and management of the work of the Foundation, from delivery to students and co-ordination with schools, to networking and strategy, and chaired the Board of Trustees until April 2016. Her passionate commitment to do all she can to prevent what happened to her son, or any other harm from drugs happening to anyone else, drives everything she does within the Foundation.
