Electronic Cigarettes / Vapes Letter

LAB Transition Forum for Parents and Carers.

Dear Parents and Carers,

We are aware of the growing number of children and young people who are being exposed to potentially harmful substances through the use of electronic cigarettes (“vapes”) and smokeless, chewing tobacco (sometimes known as ‘snus’, or ‘snuff’).

The purpose of this letter is to inform you of our concerns, but also to provide you with some helpful and informative resources to use when talking to your child about the potential risk of these substances. 

Some additional information: 

At LAB, we will continue to work with our students, raising the dangers of using both electronic cigarettes and smokeless tobacco. Please note that the possession of both electronic cigarettes and of smokeless tobacco is forbidden at the academy, and is sanctioned in the same way as any incident of smoking or possession of smoking paraphernalia, as detailed in our behaviour policy

Should you have any further concerns, please do contact your child’s college team. 


Kind regards

Mrs C Lindars 

Vice Principal – Airy College
