Period Equality

All female Year 7 students had an assembly with Mrs Ripley, our Medical Officer, to tell them about the products available to them at school and how they can access these. They were all offered a pack of Always Ultra Towels to take away with them at the end of Assembly.

We believe that period products should be made available to those who need them in education as they're a necessity, not a luxury. The Department for Education's (DfE) Period Product scheme provides free period products to young people who need them in schools and colleges. This scheme will enable all learners to participate fully in education by making period products available as and when they are needed. There is a choice of pads and tampons, including environmentally-friendly and reusable products.
