The resource book used in three Essex children support centres (formerly known as Pupil Referral Units) has contributed to the centres achieving outstanding Ofsted reports in January 2014. The resource helpfully provided a structured way of evidencing activities the staff have been involved in and the progress made by the students.

The AET has developed a set of 8 lesson plans and powerpoint presentations in partnership with the SEND organisation Image in Action focusing around understanding consent, categorising risk and building an understanding of different social situations. Children with SEND are three times more likely to be abused and alcohol can be used to groom vulnerable children by both strangers and people they know.To commission or order these resources, please email

This innovative resource has good ideas, useful activities, relevant stories and case studies and clear images. This resource will enable teachers to choose relevant elements to support them to deliver alcohol education for their pupils in ways that pupils will understand.

There are key topics that provide a strong foundation for pupils’ learning plus techniques that facilitate gradual development of skills and knowledge in ways that will ensure pupil’s’ understanding. Often resources for mainstream pupils do not work with pupils with special educational needs and disabilities and teachers have to adapt them or cannot use them. This resource has everything a teacher needs in order to get across key messages.
