star this property answer text <p>We have no plans to change our policy regarding the sale of ivory. The international trade in elephant ivory is currently banned under the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES). A proposal has been put forward by a small number of CITES Parties, including Zimbabwe, for consideration at the 18th meeting of CITES Conference of the Parties (CoP) to resume international trade in ivory from these countries. These proposals will be subject to robust challenge at the CoP before any decision.</p> more like this

From September 2020, Health Education will be compulsory for all pupils in primary and secondary state-funded schools.</p><p> </p><p>The Department’s Searching, Screening and Confiscation guidance sets out schools’ powers to search pupils and confiscate prohibited items. Schools have the power to confiscate, retain or dispose of any item that is banned by the school rules or detrimental to school discipline, including vapes. Schools can set out in their behaviour policy their approach to the use of vapes and any sanction that will be imposed for their use.</p><p> </p><p>The Department does not collect data on the number of schools that have written to parents on the prevalence of vaping.</p>
