    Find out the six ways how schools can help pupils in tackling period poverty:

    ‘Sarah Carr, PSHE lead for the NEAT multi-academy trust, which covers four primaries and a secondary in an area of social disadvantage, has set up health hubs in all five schools with the help of charity Plan International. The hubs give out fresh leggings and tights, as well as free sanitary products. Ms Carr said part of supporting pupils living in period poverty is realising the level of need in pupils’ homes.’
