For the purposes of this guidance, 'schools' is used to refer to the following educational establishments:
• maintained and independent primary, secondary and special schools
• city technology colleges and academies
• pupil referral units, secure training and local authority secure units
• further education colleges
• 'extended schools' where childcare or informal education is provided outside school hours.

The guidance is for commissioners, managers and practitioners who have a direct or indirect role in, and responsibility for, preventing the uptake of smoking by children and young people. This includes those working in the NHS, local authorities, education and the wider public, private, voluntary and community sectors. It may also be of interest to children and young people, their parents or carers and other members of the public.
