The NHS and the Department of Health and Social Care are interested in finding out about smoking, drinking and drug taking amongst young people. Ipsos MORI, an independent research agency, has been commissioned by NHS Digital to undertake this important national survey.

The Smoking, Drinking and Drug Use survey has been running since 1982 and this year will collect information on the attitudes and experiences of more than 10,000 secondary school pupils.

With the co-operation of the head teacher, your child’s school has kindly agreed to take part. This will involve your child being asked to complete a questionnaire in one single class period.

Pupils from 7IH, 9JG and 10VK at St. Hild's have been asked to take part in the completion of this survey.
