Encouraging open and honest talk about periods

Let's get started...

Delivering a betty lesson about periods couldn't be simpler - just download the teacher notes (so you know what's what), send out the parent letter using our template, then load up our PSHE Association accredited lesson on to your interactive whiteboard - it can be run in one or two sessions and tailored to the needs of your students.
