As you will be aware, Short Heath Federation operates a full no smoking site and works hard to promote a smoke free future for all pupils. In light of the increased popularity of electronic cigarettes (sometimes referred to as ‘vapes’ or ‘shisha’ pens) it is now necessary to be clear that the use of these devices on site is not permitted. Electronic cigarettes should not be charged on site as they represent a fire hazard. http://www.nhs.uk/livewell/smoking/Pages/stopsmokingnewhome.aspx provides support for smokers wanting to give up.
