Extension of free period products for all schools and colleges

Monday 1st July 2024

The DfE provide guidance for schools and post-16 education organisations in England on providing free period products for pupils and students. This year the scheme was extended and will continue to operate for the 2024 to 2025 academic year

Here is the link to the guidance which explains how the products can be ordered and how to access and implement the scheme effectively. 

There is a wide range of products available for schools and colleges to select from, including sustainable and eco-friendly products.

Once products are delivered, it will be up to school and college leaders to decide how they make products available to learners, in such a way that maximises support and minimises stigma.
