Breaking the taboo all starts with education

Our role is to be the best big sister to young teens going through all the dramas and awkwardness of growing up, especially when it comes to the topic of periods.
Breaking the period taboo all begins with education by encouraging open, honest and real conversations. betty for schools is helping to create a generation of girls and boys who are truly at ease talking about periods, through both our innovative period products and award-winning education programme.
We've worked with young people and education experts to develop curriculum-linked lessons for 8-12 year olds that encourage open, respectful and honest conversations about periods and the way they affect girls.
Our PSHE Association accredited resources are film-led, with a mix of animations, quizzes and interactive activities, making it easy for teachers to deliver our sessions with confidence.
