The subject of free sanitary products in schools for young females is something a lot of people are talking about at the moment and here in Wrexham we’re looking into the effect that the lack of free sanitary wear can have on our young female school pupils.
We’re trying to find the extent of the issue in order to make things better in the future and we’re now undertaking two surveys……………………… please carry on reading as this is important!
We’re hoping that secondary school pupils will take part and also teachers and school staff so please pass this on to anyone who may be able to take part.
It’s believed that not having access to free sanitary products whilst in school is not only causing embarrassment to pupils but it may affect them to the point that they actually miss school.
Were you aware of this? Are you affected or know someone who is affected by this.
Please take the time to fill this survey in so we can have a good idea of the problem and be able to respond to the need effectively. They’re available here:
Pupil survey here.
The findings will go before a Task and Finish Group which will then report to the Lifelong Learning Scrutiny Committee in autumn 2018. This report will be a public report.APPLY FOR A PUPIL DEVELOPMENT GRANT
