Event description
1 in 4 girls will start their periods before being taught about them.

About this Event

The onset of menstruation can be confusing or even alarming for girls if they are not prepared. From September 2020, as part of statutory health education, pupils should be taught key facts about the menstrual cycle including what is an average period, range of menstrual products and the implications for emotional and physical health. This makes it increasingly important that schools support and prepare children and young people.

Key facts about the menstrual cycle should be taught alongside open and honest discussion about the social stigmas. Working to address and challenge any misinformation or feelings of embarrassment or shame. Schools should also consider how can support girls to manage menstruation at school.

Tameside Population Health Team has commissioned Tough Cookies Education to provide a number of workshops which will be FREE to attend for teachers and staff working in Tameside schools.

For schools and organisation that are not in Tameside please contact Tough Cookies Education to discuss.
