Good news! Free period products will remain available to pupils in schools and colleges across England, as the government announces an extension to its fully-funded scheme. The scheme sees tampons, pads, menstrual cups and other environmentally-friendly period products available for schools to distribute to their pupils until the end of this academic year (2021-2022).
Started in January 2020, the scheme helps all girls and young women attend school when they might have otherwise missed out.
